I am studying my focus and I tend to habitually place it in the same place. Look for rain clouds and thunder storms you will find them. I began the year with a morning set point; whenever something doesn’t work out the way I think it should or thought it would, instead of thinking that something went wrong or is wrong, I see it as something that went unexpectedly well, but for reasons that are not yet apparent. Every day, sometimes many times in an hour, ‘things’ are not going the way I thought or hoped. Looking for the open door instead of the all the ones closing is more interesting and less stressful on everyone around me. Taking action instead of whining, complaining, wishing and hoping is more fruitful and far more satisfying. Results? They will come.
Aggravation, agitation and annoyance were a favored mode of operation in the past. If it wasn’t broke, break it because whatever can’t be broke is worth keeping and everything that breaks come back stronger or was not worth keeping…. A bit too much edge in it however. Harmony appears to be not only useful but required for success to appear.
My greatest successes were when the money, the score, was unrelated to the goal. My pay was either guaranteed and my success or failure made no differnece on my pay. The incentive to do well, to succeed was unrelated to the income entirely.
Then next set of successes were when I had a guaranteed income based on past performance, a draw that was a base, provided some kind of security or cushion. I could stretch and fail and there was a ‘net’ of sorts while if I succeeded I added to the base.
How do I use this to my current situation?
