MM&I Header

March 11, 2013 -  Do you want something different? Do you find yourself looking at your life and wishing your circumstances or things were different than they are right now? When you spend a majority of your time focusing on what is not as you desire it to be, you are giving it power over your ability to manifest a different outcome. Instead, focus on how you can make any aspect of your life better. Focus on how you can move forward, even in the smallest of ways.  By focusing on progression and improvement, you are no longer wasting energy on what has been and are putting your energy towards what could be.

Take an MM&I Moment to consider whatever situation is not as you want it to be.  Now  begin to list the smallest things you can do to make it more tolerable or less stressful.  Consider anything that you might need to learn or know to better understand  your situation. Consider who you could involve to help you or guide you in a positive, productive way. No matter  the circumstance, there is always something you can do to make it better. By focusing on positive action instead of negative reaction, you will quickly realize the power you truly have within you.
