attitude realignment

Beverly Ryle does amazing work with people who want to find or create the work they were meant to do on earth. Her latest book, Ground of Your Own Choosing, is an excellent guide to transition, whether it’s by choice or loss of employment. You can learn more about Beverly and her work at http://www.successonyourownterms.com.

Beverly also publishes an excellent newsletter. Here is an excerpt from the latest (electronic) issue. I think you will agree that the precepts apply to getting well and staying well.

Precautions Against Negativity
Health organizations have aggressively publicized guidelines on how to protect yourself from the spread of disease. Their suggestions include, washing your hands regularly, covering your mouth when you cough, avoiding crowds, and wearing a mask.

Here are my corresponding precautions to fight off negativity:

  • Every time you wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer, make an inquiry into your state of mind as well.
  • Just as you cover your mouth when you cough, contain the spread of messages that are harmful to yourself, and others, by pressing an imaginary reset button in palm of your hand.
  • When you’re in the company of others who you think are succumbing to negativity, ask them to describe the experiences or data their opinion is based on, and don’t settle for vague generalities.
  • Be selective with whom you talk to about your plans. Screen out people who make your spirits sag, and seek out those who lift them.
  • Thanks, Beverly. And best wishes to my readers,

    Carolyn
