“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.”  ~ Viktor Frankl Sooner or later something happens in life that shakes you up. Overwhelming heartbreak. Unexpected money problems. Serious health scares. All leaving you feeling vulnerable, scared and lost. Tough times happen to us all. Things go wrong. I recently had an unexpected business challenge to deal with and I was glad to have a process in place for dealing with things going wrong. Here are six solutions I’ve found to be helpful when something goes wrong. It’s not a cure all, but it’s helped turn some tough situations around in my life. 1. Sometimes the oldies really are the goodies Ignoring your problems won’t make them go away. Over thinking them won’t make them go away. Taking them to bed with you at night and feeling…

[success]The real key is to live in an environment where the mind feels free to choose the right thing instead of being compelled by habit and inertia to choose the wrong thing. ~ Deepak Chopra[/success] Life comes with no guarantees of perfection, is filled with imperfect people, doesn’t give us total control or security and no promises that you won’t experience pain and disappointment. Life is also magnificent, mysterious and miraculous. And with every discouraging experience comes the chance to decide to do something different.

Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. ~ Michael Jordan[/success] My life is similar to yours, sometimes up, sometimes down; filled with great things and discouragement. Everyone experiences heartache and setbacks. Who hasn’t felt the sting of rejection or the sorrow of loss? Today, if you’re drooping from the latest down in your life or if you haven’t yet had a dream come true, remember tomorrow will be a new day, a new start. A new start means letting some things go, being empty of what was full. Don’t be afraid to release old patterns and replace them with new ideas. Being full of past dramas, old beliefs and concepts, past betrayals and setbacks keeps you from creating the life of your dreams today. Let today be…

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. ~ Khalil Gibran We’ve all had those ‘days’ when nothing goes right, where everything we touched fell apart in our hands, where we’d have done better to stay in bed. We want to get out there and be our best, but it’s hard. We want to do our best, but we keep getting sidetracked. We want to live our best but we’re stuck in the mud. If you’re ready to feel more confident, be more inspired and more satisfied with your life, stop doing for a moment and try simply being. Then consider this.
