First, what kind of personality do you have? How do you view your world and what's happening in it? How do you usually react ?
In yesterday's spilled milk example, even though I consider myself a positive type of person, I usually react negatively. This is an inconvenience, it's difficult, it's not what I wanted... WahWahWah... However, once I finish that release, I choose a more positive, practical response. The great thing is, we can all choose how to respond.
Of course, we have to teach ourselves how to respond in a positive way; learning to be a positive thinker.
Next time: Choosing your response...
