Tony Robbins says that when you’re facing a problem, you always have a choice.
Either you change your situation, or you change your perspective.
When my anxiety tells me that I’m stuck; that it’s hopeless; that there’s nothing to be done… I turn to these words for comfort, hope and strength.
These words inspire me into action, safe in the knowledge that there is always something that you can do.
Either I take a step towards changing this difficult situation – a decision, a conversation, a distraction, a mindful moment. Or I can move to re-think my situation; to re-frame; to consider what I’d say to a friend; to assess the advantages of this.
The point is – it’s never as hopeless as it seems, no matter how insurmountable the problem may appear to be.
