How do you react when you get news about your money?
Do you jump to extreme conclusions?
Stop! Breathe! Catastrophic thinking gets you nowhere. It will raise your stress levels, and it will keep you from determining what action needs to be taken.
It is FEAR! False Evidence Appearing Real!
You can listen to the news, breathe, and think it through rather than reacting.
This is a first step towards resilience. You can take the nightmare and create a happy ending. Yes, you can! But remember, there is always good news, too! You can take the good news and create a happy ending instead of thinking of all the reasons it will go amiss. You can rewrite the story the way you want it to end.
So don’t became a king or queen of drama, become the author of your story and make it be truly your story!
