Do this for a couple of minutes and spot how shortly the glow fades.

Now what’s fascinating is objectively talking, nothing has modified between these two workouts. You’re nonetheless occupying the identical house. You’re nonetheless surveying the identical surroundings. That surroundings nonetheless incorporates the identical issues, the issues which are each fantastic and woeful. However how you’re feeling. About these issues.

How you’re feeling about these completely different realities is decided by your way of thinking. When you select to see the great, you’re feeling good. When you select to see the dangerous, you’re feeling dangerous. And so my level right here is now we have way more management over our feelings than we regularly assume we do.
