If I find myself upset over one or more on-going situations that I face regularly, there's a step I can take to improve my mood and attitude. It involves asking myself an important and very general question: "How would I feel if things were going as I want them to go?"
That's it. I simply pause and ask myself that question. Then in response, I feel first relief and then some of the emotions that I would feel if things were going well.
This process is not about envisioning a change in the details of the situation, for that can give me the same old feeling of upset and doubt that things can ever really improve. This is simply a broad, theoretical question that evokes broad, feel-good emotions.
I can return to this question and the improved feelings it evokes as often as I want, throughout the day. With this process, I will show myself that (1) I can feel better regardless of challenging situations and (2) the situations will respond, in time, to my feeling better.
And the greater treasure here is (1).
