News flash everywhere that the world is facing a huge financial crisis. With the near collapse of the world super economy and trillions of dollars vanish through the loss in the stock market value. Company downsizing and people losing jobs. My friend who work in the offshore bank was given a 24 hours notice however she was given a 6 months salary as a compensation. 10 years ago in my hometown the local shipyard gates were chained up early one morning. Workers were left stranded outside the gate not knowing what had happen. Salaries were not paid and the company was under bankruptcy. Is there any good that can be seen in all this happening ?
Life just isn't fair, but I think that being positive is not to deny what seems to be happening, but rather to focus on our ability to response to what is happening. We should not be the victim but the victor. Playing as a victim will paralyse us from taking action and only becomes bitter and angry. We all have choices although sometimes it does not seem that way. Remember the old saying " When there is a will, there is a way" I believe we are equip with the natural instinct to survive and will do anything to make a comeback.

1. What is my pain?
Do you have current concerns that is really bothering you and you have a strong desire to do something about it.
2. What is the resolution?
Brainstorm the alternative solutions that is available to you. Sometimes it helps to talk to someone whom you trust or who have been there.
3. Why am I stuck with my pain and haven't found the solution?
Identify the blockage that is resisting you to change. Most often the blockage arise from misinformed perception.
4. What is the process?
Identify what needs to be done, what knowledge you lack, the new skills to be learned and the new habits you need to cultivate. Consider getting a mentor or coach in making the change.
5. What is my first step?
The journey to a thousand steps begin with the first step. Focus on taking one action at a time. It is in taking the baby steps that is most often effective rather than taking a big task. You may be overwhelmed by it and be disheartened.
Try it out and let me know if this helps and I love to hear about your personal success and your secret.

Being human, the ability to manage our emotions and feelings well is key to happiness. Some people pray, meditate, while some take a glance at their vision board as a way to energise and reconnect to their life's purpose. Everyone have their own strategies that work for them.
Like it or not, we are solely responsible for our emotions and our internal states. If we surrender to the external forces, we will find ourselves in false bondage. It seems, we had lost our freedom as we gave up our personal choices, the only thing that separate us from the animals.
