  • Many people are struggling with their emotions. Some have lost their livelihoods, others feel overwhelmed by all the challenges and change, and some may even feel depressed or angry. What is your advice to these people right now?

    Right now, many people tend to compare what’s going on in their life right now with the way it used to be, or a fantasy of the way they’d like it to be. As a result, they’re not grounded in reality and can easily become frustrated or depressed. They tend to overreact and dramatize their story in a way that makes them the victim of something that is happening TO them.

    The first step is to stop and objectively assess the situation as best you can. Objectivity means ‘even minded’. That means you're anticipating the challenges that you face and you're mitigating the responses.

    The second step is to ask yourself, “How is my current real situation helping me get what I want?” Then don't stop until you write down as many benefits of what's happening in that moment as you can, as well as a plan of how this challenge can be used to accomplish what you want in life. In doing so, you choose to become a master of your destiny instead of the victim of your history.

    • What about people who can’t find anything positive about their current situation?
    • There is no such thing on this planet that doesn't have an upside. It doesn't exist. During The Breakthrough Experience weekends that I offer, I often have people come in who want to tell their story and demonstrate how hard their life has been. I have to stop them and ask, “But how has that helped you?” Sometimes it takes a while, but I keep asking, “What was the benefit?” And then all of a sudden they get over the hump and they start looking at ways that so-called challenge has helped them spiritually, intellectually, financially, professionally, socially and in terms of their health.

      If you just keep answering that same question, your “challenge” will no longer be perceived as a challenge. You won't be depressed because you won't have an unrealistic expectation and fantasy that you're comparing your life to. You'll be seeing things as “on the way”, not “in the way”, and your mind and emotions will be brought back into balance.
