BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 by Stuart Wilde in INFINITE SELF

“If you’re going through an emotional time, ask yourself, ‘What is my opinion here?’ You might say, “I’m insecure, because I think I might be losing my job.” Okay, stop and pull back. What can you do about it? THE WAY IT IS, IS THE WAY IT IS. You perceive that things aren’t going well at work, so what’s the next step? Action. Rather than running away because of emotion, like a little child who gets scared and flees, when you’re faced with adversity, step forward in your feelings, not back. Write it down and put it on your refrigerator: “In challenging circumstances, I will step forward, not back.” Review the situation and take action.

When there’s trouble at work, what can you do to fix it? Who can you talk to, to square things away? The factory may be laying off people, but they probably won’t lay off everyone, so what can you do to improve your performance? What can you do to fix the trouble? Well, first you can create more energy. But if that doesn’t work, what’s the worst that can happen? You’re going to get chucked out of the job, and you’ll find something else to do. So maybe the universe is helping to release you form one dumb job, opening doors for you to find something more creative and more profitable to do.”

Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
