If you believe it is true then whether it is true or not, it is what you base your opinion on. Your thoughts are your reality. Whether they are based on real reality doesn't matter. Your thoughts are the reality you live. If you want to change any part of your life you will have to change how you think before your reality will change. It is all in how you look at it. If you see only the negatives then you can't have a positive thought about anything. You don't need to pay thousands of dollars to go hear a motivational speaker. Just get in the habit of looking as long and hard as you have to until you find something positive about every day. It's like one time my friend and I stopped by a little junk store. Before we got out of the car we could see that this was truly a junk store. And to beat all it was car part junk not knick knacks like we were looking for. For the fun of it we decided to make a game out of going inside and hunt to see if we could find anything we would want to buy. It wasn't necessarily fun looking through all the rusty dirty items but we took on the challenge. And we were both determined to find something, it was a game we were determined to win, just cause. Just as I was about to give up, I found something that still hangs on my wall nearly three decades later. It was a basket woven to be a crow. He said his dad had hung that up when he first opened the store up decades ago. So now it is over a half of a century old and I will treasure it forever. If I didn't look until I found it, I never would have found it. It is not the circumstances that you face that determines the outcome. It is how you react to whatever you face that determines the outcome. You will find what you seek. If you look for a way for you to have a positive outcome you will find a way for you to have a positive outcome, no matter what you are facing. If you look for trouble you will find it.
