We all have issues and obstacles that come up from time to time, however, it seems these challenges weigh on some more than others. How do we not let these things get to us and drag us further down?
Many years ago I felt as if every obstacle that came my way was a lead weight I carried around everywhere! Of course, I didn’t like feeling this way, but how was I to stop it? I began to really ponder why it felt so heavy…The main reason was money! Every obstacle seemed to have a price tag-one that I didn’t want to pay because of financial stress. What problem could I have that couldn’t be solved with money? Well, I found there really aren’t too many issues that can’t be solved with money. With this in mind I thought, wouldn’t it be wonderful to out-earn my problems? What if I could remove the stress of the unwanted financial curve balls? I began to focus on my ability to out earn these problems and the relief that would bring. The very thought of that control gave me hope and some relief. With continued focus on this possibility, instead of the gloom and doom of the issue, my perspective changed and my focus on increasing income improved!
My point here is to give you some hope that you don’t have to feel bogged down by your problems. What if you out-earned your problems? Try saying this to yourself every day and watch how you will begin to feel more in control of your financial situation and when challenges pop up it can help you gain a new positive perspective!
