What is your mind telling you? Check and see what your mind has been telling you. Has it been telling you to take in as much news as you can, as if more details will lead you to a solution? Does it tell you to talk to everybody you know about how bad things are? All that does is reinforce a negative view of reality. If you follow that course you’ll soon become convinced that you should worry day and night about everything that’s going on. You’ll feel like you should be doing something about it and that will lead to further frustration because you won’t know what to do. You can think about it until you are blue in the face, but it simply will not help. How does it help you to get all tied up in knots worrying about things you cannot change? How does it help you to be nervous and scared over anything?
Blame is completely irrelevant: Whatever you do, do not let yourself get caught up in the blame game. No matter what happens in your life don’t go looking for someone to blame. Don’t waste time trying to figure out whose fault it is. Blame is nothing but an emotional dead end. Along the same line, don’t expect someone else to make everything better. It is totally unrealistic to think that anyone else is going to make much of a difference. Stop looking for other people to change your outlook; it is entirely up to you.
Claim your independence and shine: Nobody controls your feelings except you. If you decide to be positive in spite of what’s going on around you, your energy levels will go up, your attitude will improve, and your feelings will become increasingly more positive. Granted, sometimes terrible things happen and I am not suggesting that we ignore them as if nothing was wrong. Denial is not a solution! What I am saying is that projecting negative emotional energy will not help the situation. The worse a situation is the more it needs your positive energy.
Your outlook on life is your decision. Decide to be positive in spite of everything, and watch what happens. You can decide in favor of yourself even in the face of bad news. It’s a decision, your decision. Don’t take my word for it, try it out for yourself. Find out that being positive in spite of the noise will bring you more and more things to feel happy and positive about. Become a magnet for positive energy by being positive and optimistic. Make it your goal to become the most positive person you know and influence others for the good. Become an inspirational lighthouse of positive energy. You have the power, so don’t be afraid to use it."
