Disappointment and Mind-Sets

Disappointment comes from failed expectations.  A failed expectation, if you cling to it unreasonably; is dark and dreary and feels like running in quicksand.  If you set unreasonable, illogical goals or believe in illogical, unreasonable expectations, you can tend to repeat the disappointment spiral.

Break a less than positive mind-set by chipping away at it little by little.  Here are some questions to ask yourself when you confront a patterned response that is occupying your mind in a less than healthy way:

  • Just how important is this?
  • Who owns the problem?
  • Who is in charge?
  • What do I want to do?
  • What is reasonable?
  • Am I looking for negativity – anticipating problems which may or may not occur?
  • Am, I wasting energy in a no-win situation?

When you gain insight into your thinking pattern, you can then build a new reality within your mind.  By using your imagination, create a life filled with happiness and satisfaction as you define them.

Then take that visualization in your mind and apply your personal energy through directed thoughts, words and actions to change your reality from what you currently perceive it to be to the reality you have created in your mind.
