Stop-anticipating-painStop anticipating pain.

Stop worrying about things that you can’t control and that may not happen.

Stop reacting to the implausible events that haven’t taken place yet.

Stop over-preparing yourself for the worst possible outcome.

Stop greeting the day as if it is out to get you.

Stop flinching before you need to.

Stop looking in the sky for rain clouds on a beautiful sunny day.

Start anticipating good times.

Start looking for adventures.

Start attempting deeds where the outcome isn’t guaranteed.

Start taking risks.

Start whistling a merry tune, not because of what the day has brought you, but because of what you are bringing to the day.

Start preparing yourself for blessings to come your way.

Start thanking God before you have received the answer to your prayers.

And start shifting your attitude into a positive mindset that is prepared to take on the world and make it a better place.
