Live the intensity of the moment.

Don’t worry about the injustice done to you, but focus on your future. “It only takes one positive thought to get a chance to survive and grow, to overpower a whole army of negative thoughts.” (Robert H. Schuller). Don’t cheat on wasted chances, but zeal for opportunities around you now. Work on your dreams with confidence and creativity and live your life with passion.

Fear of all sorts of things makes you depressed, tense, scared and negative. It can be fearful of financial problems, a grumpy boss, a bad situation, or an overload of work. But refuse to focus on fear. Analyze the fear, think through solutions and take steps to deal with the problem. Then concentrate on everything you have on your goals and the way you go. Shift doubts and fear thoughts deliberately, and give all your energy and thought to your dreams. Take one day at a time, and handle that day fully and positively. Think positively and masterfully with confidence and faith, and life becomes more awesome, full of action, richer in performance and experienced.
