Positive Principle: Being Honest
One of the things that is the most important in attracting positive results in our lives actually, is seeing all the "negative" results clearly. I know that sounds counter intuitive when we want "positive" results. Follow me here...
This means that in order for us to really shift our results from things that we don't want like negative relationships, lack of money, frustration, overwhelmed, anger or any of the above, we must be honest with ourselves that they're happening. The problem is that most of the time we keep looking at those things over and over and we keep getting more of that. Instead of noticing it, processing it, and seeing the gift in all of those "negative things" then moving through them.
On the other hand, there is also the syndrome of pretending everything is okay all the time. Saying I don't really see that my finances are out of order, my relationship is not working, I'm not satisfied in my career, I really am beating myself All all the time etc. by not honestly looking at those things for just a little while then we can never really healed them.
The whole point is to acknowledge what's not working in our lives, then change your mind first and take small actions to shift the situation. The most important part of that equation is the changing your mind, because everything comes from the mind all the results on the outer level are a result of what our mind is doing and saying.
Have the courage to look at what's not working and what is frustrating in your life, then see what are the positive things about that situation. What are you learning from that situation? What is that situation trying to tell you that is helping you? What is that situation saying about yourself ? if you answer these questions honestly it will give you a different perspective of your experience. Once you get a different perspective and things can start to change and you can start to take small actions that are in alignment with what you want.
Do yourself a favor today and pick a situation in your life that you haven't been dealing with on that is overwhelming you and answer all the questions I have just laid out. Then see how your mind changes about the situation. When you change your mind your life changes…

I just stumbled across the beginning of this post on Google+ and opened the link to read the rest. First and foremost, allow me to say "Thank You". This article resonates with me on so many levels....my life is in chaos and has been for quite a while now. Too long. With that being said, I AM aware of all the negative parts of my life, but I haven't really "owned" it. Not really. In my mind I know what needs fixing but I haven't sat down and really asked myself the hard-hitting questions, like you have suggested. I would even go so far as to say that I know the answers to some of those questions and I may have some solutions, too, for my myriad of problems. Your article struck a chord with me, though, and I'm going to sit down tonight and begin the process of creating a new "me". One that I'm proud of, one that doesn't make excuses for not having it together - even though I'm an intelligent woman. Thank you for the breakthrough that I've desperately been in need of.
