Mindset is your most powerful tool

Happiness and success begins with change. Change that you create for yourself. Don’t wait around, hoping that the solution to your problem will come eventually. You’ll just get more frustrated and unhappy, I can assure you. Today, I did Krav Maga for the first time. It’s a type of tactical combat fighting. What I learnt was that, as humans, we have a tendency to get carried away by intense emotions such as anxiety, anger and frustration. We can not control our emotions, but what we can control is what we choose to focus on. I’ve realised that I have a tendency to focus on negative emotions. Therefore, today marks the day that I conquer my emotions and focus on goals that I set myself. In particular, I have a supplementary exam coming up, so I shall choose to focus on getting through the exam by focusing on what I know, writing that down, and visualising myself passing this subject.

So to all you out there, take that first step because new solutions to that ‘thing’ stressing you out (you know the one in the back of your head) will only come your way when you change your mindset.

About Donna

If I was to describe myself in a nutshell, I am a 23-year-old, who just graduated! I am someone who is full of spirit, likes to dress cute, has big dreams, and is somewhat adventurous, with quirks that make people smile. Some people have a clear direction of what path they want to follow in life. I on the other hand, have decided to simply follow what make me happy. If you've been doing a little soul searching lately or you're still trying to define the meaning of life, well I can tell you this, if you can't figure out your purpose on this planet, find what it is that you're passionate about. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose. Open your heart. Listen with an open mind. And for God's sake, live a little! I hope you stay a while and read about my 20-something rants, antics and adventures in Sydney, and perhaps pick up a thing or two.
