It’s Hard to Appreciate the Good Without the Bad Are you one of those people who is claiming 2016 to be one of the worst years yet? This seems to be the overwhelming perspective judging by the media. Yes, 2016 had some low points: The presidential election Aleppo North Dakota Pipeline protest Racism Terror attacks Celebrities passing away Etc. I could keep going and I’m sure you have a few things on your mind that sucked ass too. However, what are some of the good things happened, specifically in your life? If you reflect long enough I guarantee you could find some high points to balance out the rollercoaster year we’ve experienced. I mentioned it in the previous episode 20 but it’s hard to appreciate the good without the bad. Seeing the horrible things going on in the world like the suffering people of Aleppo should make you stop and appreciate every little thing that you take for granted. How amazing is it to have a roof over your head? How great is it to sleep without having bombs going off all around you? How freaking lucky are you to have access to food and clean water? See my point? So ya, 2016 wasn’t the greatest but you have a choice of which lens you choose to see the world through. Going into 2017, my message is to encourage you to find the light within the darkness. Appreciate when things are going right in your life as you can’t appreciate the good without the bad. Negative Attracts Negative I believe in the Law of Attraction and have watched it work many good and bad things in my life. It boils down to the concept of “Like Attracts Like.” When you focus on the negative, you’re going to attract more negativity in your life. Your mindset and the thoughts you vibrate into the world manifest more of what you’re thinking of. Think about it; you wake up one morning and it feels like nothing is going right: You slept in too late You stub your toe getting out of bed You speed to work because you’re running late You honk and scream because everyone is driving too slow Y
