A Key To Creating Happiness and a Happy Life Is To Move from Problems to Solutions Quickly.
So long as we focus our time and attention on problems, what's wrong and how terrible it is, we continue to feel anxious, distressed, angry or sad.
When we focus on possible positive solutions we feel much better.
Positive solutions allow us to resolve difficulties, achieve valued goals, build new skills and prepare for future successes.
This is an illustration of The First Law of Happiness - Our Focus Determines Our Feelings. Focusing on bad things makes us feel sad, angry or anxious.
When we turn our attention toward good things we feel much better - energized, empowered and enthusiastic.
Beware: Problems are sometimes very hard to let go of because they are powerful sources of energy, albeit negative energy, for us. Problems easily become our own internal horror shows. The more we think about them, the larger, more overwhelming and frightening they become.
This is an illustration of the Second Fundamental Happiness Fact - Whatever We Focus On Expands In Our Consciousness. Whatever we give time and attention to grows in our reality.
There is a very important difference between worrying about problems and solving them.
The best solutions often lie outside of the problem's parameters. So long as we continue to stare at problems we often can't see those successful solutions.
That's why it is so important to detach from problems and start seeking successful solutions quickly.
Moving from Problems to Possible Successful Solutions Quickly is a Key to Happiness and Spiritual Success. When we solve problems, we salve the problem's pain.
