Beyond dissatisfaction

Things will begin to get better when you define precisely what better means to you. The pains and frustrations will start to ease when you have something solid and positive with which to replace them.

To successfully move away from an undesirable situation, decide exactly where you wish to go. Create a powerful intention for yourself, and feed that intention with the energy that’s in your desire for change.

It is not enough to complain about how things are. That can get the ball rolling, and yet it won’t take you very far.

Move quickly to create a vision of how the world can be. Give yourself a compelling goal to move toward.

Enthusiasm is a key ingredient of success. And you’ll always have a more productive kind of enthusiasm when you’re focused on a positive future.

Go beyond your dissatisfaction with what is, and put your energy into imagining the best of what can be. Clearly know where you wish to go, and you’ll naturally make the effort that gets you there.
