Articles -- Light a spark

There's nothing wrong with striving for more - more education, a more fulfilling job, better health, etc. But how you think about your situation has a huge impact on the result.

If you focus on what you don't have, you will get into a negative emotional state that weighs you down and tends to make the situation worse. Focusing on misery keeps you submersed in misery.

If, on the other hand, you focus on the positive things that you already have, it generates a positive energy that will propel you towards more positive things.

For example, if you would like a more fulfilling job, look at the aspects of your current job that are fulfilling. There's always something. It may be the occasional lunchtime outing with colleagues. Or perhaps you enjoy brainstorming problems or writing reports.

When you start to focus on what you find fulfilling, think of ways to do more of that, perhaps in various contexts. For example, you may decide to do some events planning for your group or start a group newsletter. Then, get in the habit of talking to people about your activities and aspirations.

When you focus on the positive and take advantage of opportunities to do more of what you love, it will light a spark that is unstoppable.
