Do something

When something is troubling you, that’s your cue to take positive action to resolve it. That may seem obvious, yet far too often it’s a choice that is overlooked or avoided.

The discomfort you feel is attempting to tell you something. It’s time to do what you can, what you must.

If the troubling situation is within your power to change, then do what’s necessary to make it better. If it is something you cannot change, then take steps within your own life to put yourself out of reach of the negative consequences.

If resolving the issue will take considerable time, don’t let that stop you. The sooner you get started, the more firmly in control you’ll be.

Not only does it feel lousy to be worried and anxious, it does nothing to improve the situation. So choose to re-direct that negative energy into positive action.

Do something about it, and instead of being a helpless victim you suddenly become a powerful force for change. You’ll quickly discover that it’s a much better place to be.
