How do we develop the skill set that allows us to find the 'gift' in any experience?  Are some people just born with this ability? 


At the same time we do have a wonderful capacity to learn.  Once we recognize the need for an attitude evolution, a reason that makes sense to us, we have a tremendous ability to shift in the way we look at things.

We rarely make changes because we should, whether that mandate comes from someone else or our own internal bully voices…

We change our outlooks when we understand that we do have a choice, and that we can upgrade our attitude in a way that improves our quality of life!

An opportunity to experiment with some fun ideas...


Remember that old saying: "Fake it till you make it"?  Well this is a variation on that theme with a bit of movie stardom thrown in…

Think of someone you know who is inspiring in their attitude towards hard times.

Imagine you can be that proverbial fly on the wall and watch and listen to how they go about dealing with difficult things…

Now get your actor thing going and take on their role as if you were really studying for a part in a movie!  Imitate their voice - copy their body movements - facial expressions…

Be them for a few minutes.  (Actors often talk about how they expand their own awareness by taking on roles for a movie, stating that after the gig is over they find something in them has changed.)

Take a minute in this role and let yourself experience a somewhat altered reality.  How does this feel?

Now, take a deep breath and step back into your own shoes.  Can you feel the shift?
