Fix It or Manage It?

tools_in_custom_pocket_15703I’m taking a course and this is an issue that came up a few weeks ago. How often do you find something going wrong in your life and you spend endless hours trying to fix it? Only to find that nothing you do has worked and in fact, things have gotten worse the harder you’ve tried to fix them? Most of the “getting worse” is because of the Law of Attraction – when you’re trying to fix something, you’re delving deep into it and usually it’s something negative or at least something you do not want in your life. But since you’re entrenched in it, you’re only thinking of it in terms of not wanting it – otherwise it wouldn’t need fixing. You really want the opposite but you won’t attract that because you are focusing on what you do NOT want.

What if you just accepted what was going on and then tried to manage the effects or more importantly, your response to it? Managing the situation is not the same as fixing. It’s accepting things as they are and figuring out how to enjoy life and be happy and satisfied while experiencing this less than desirable thing. What would happen then is that your stress level is markedly decreased and you can concentrate on what you want to happen in your life.

It’s all about focus. Focus only on what it really is you want, not what you don’t want. I’m not suggesting that you have to be a Pollyanna about everything. Far from it. You just have to look at your life from a different perspective.

Practice managing not fixing.
