Move Towards, Not Away

It is a natural reaction, when you do not favor something, to move away from it. Sometimes, that is just the right thing to do. Other times, your reaction may be motivated by fear or another emotion that really does not serve your best interests. In that case, if you move away, it harms you.

Learn to discern when you should move towards something, rather than away from it. Examples could be an opportunity to develop a skill, a chance to repair a relationship, something that stretches you in a positive way or something that releases a negative aspect of your life. Have the courage to make things better.

Moving towards something moves you forward, so move forward, in your own interests, whenever you can!

Squeezed!

Have you ever found yourself tightly squeezed by one or more people or situations? Life and work can certainly create such circumstances.

When you find yourself pressed, get yourself fully to the present moment so that you can see what is going on. Then, take a look at what is happening and how it is affecting you. Do you know which way you want to go? Do you see no good way out? When you find yourself squeezed, keep your best interests in the forefront. Do not allow them to be bullied or rerouted by the pressure. Allow yourself to respond, not react. When you react you are rigid, so to speak. When you respond, you are in control.

Actually, being squeezed can bring good results. It can help you change form, move forward or strengthen your resolve. Next time you are squeezed, make the most of it!
