It is difficult to stay positive, when you lose your job and lose your money. At such a time, it is so easy to fall prey to negative thinking and imagining more disasters. Yet, it is at this time that positive thinking becomes so important.
If you let your thoughts become negative, if you feel despair, will this help you in any way? Absolutely not! You may say that the world conditions have changed and you can do nothing about it. You may say you are too old, or too inexperienced to get a new job, and that new jobs are sparse and hard to get. All this might be true, but there have always people who became successful even in difficult times.
You limit yourself by your thoughts, ideas and beliefs. Thoughts can be like shackles, tying you to the ground, and they can be like wings, taking you far away. It is your choice. A better life starts in the mind.
You might not be able to change you circumstances and the world around you, but you can change your inner, mental world. You can choose your thoughts, you can refuse to feel pity for yourself and picture problems and disasters, and you can fill your mind with positive thoughts and mental images.
All changes start in the mind, and you therefore need to change the way you think in order to improve your life. If you keep thinking about your current situation, of having no job and no money, you will get more despondent and unhappy and see more problems, because you focus on them, and do nothing to get out of this situation.
No matter how difficult it might be, stop your negative thinking. It will not cost you money to do so. A better life starts in the mind.
In your imagination, see yourself having a good job and earning money. Don’t say this is impossible. Believe what you are visualizing, enjoy the visualization, like you enjoy a good movie, and refuse the strong temptation to despair and say this is all nonsense.
When you focus on success you start seeing opportunities. You intuition becomes sharper, and people become more helpful. When you change your inner world of thoughts, your external world changes too, because your external world is the mirror of your inner world.
You can visualize and achieve your dreams. You can change your life, and it all starts in your mind.
