There are times when I can’t see my way out of a situation. While considering possible outcomes, I end up creating more roadblocks for myself. It gets so frustrating I would just rather wallow in my misery than face another roadblock. Misery breeds negativity and I’m trying so hard not to find comfort in my pessimistic nature. Here’s the thing. Negativity won’t get me anywhere. What will get me out of that situation is so simple and requires absolutely no manual work.

Believe that it’s possible.

That’s it. The hardest part is believing in the possibility that a positive outcome can happen. Once I adopted a positive mindset, the roadblocks dissipated. A positive mindset gives way to a clear mind and that is the driving force behind finding a solution. Sounds like a no-brainer, but when you’re a pessimist, this feels damn near impossible. All you have to do is try…

…then stand back and watch shit happen.
