Serene Sunday Getting Your Mind Right for Things to Come
By Janeane Davis on July 08, 2012
Serene Sunday - there is a serenity that can be found in getting your mind ready for the things to come.
Once in a while we have to do things that are hard. Once in a while we have to do things that are scary. Once in a while we have to do things that make us uncomfortable. It is always hard to do these things. We have to find a way to suck up the gumption to do the unpleasant thing. So what do you do?
When I have something unpleasant to do or am nervous about what is to come, I take the worst case/best case approach. By that I mean, I look at real close look at what is the worst thing that can result from the situation. Then I look at the best thing that can result from the situation. Once I do this, some of the fear is gone. I understand the best and worst that can result. I have visualized these things in my mind, I have a clear picture of the entire situation. When I do this, I feel empowered. I gain strength and perspective. I am able to move upward and onward.
So the question for you this Serene Sunday is what do you do in order to get mentally prepared for the things to come?
