Kevin Ansbro once said, “Focus on an ocean of positive, not a puddle of negatives.” I assume that you’ve found yourself stuck in that puddle and that’s why you clicked on this book. I understand how hard it is to overlook the ocean when you feel like you’re drowning in a small puddle. It’s a fact that we only need a drop of water to succumb to the disaster. I’ve woken up in the morning and had no lust for life anymore. I couldn’t feel the desires I once did. Everything I found joy in had been swept under the rug.
Negative energy forces make us believe that we’re disabled in some context. We find ourselves under immense pressure and look at the world through a kaleidoscope of black and white. Our interests fade, our relationships dwindle, and our performance at work loses the edge it once had. The deeper we sink into the realm of pessimism, the harder it is to see the beautiful ocean shore that’s only a few steps away from us. Instead, we slowly sink into the quicksand five steps away from the beach.
How deep have you fallen in to have brought you to find answers? I fell into the seemingly bottomless pit myself before I said enough was enough. I was hanging onto my job by a thread. Our finances are intertwined with our career and when we allow it to plunder, we allow ourselves to risk financial ruin. The snowballing impact negativity washes over us is unspeakable at times. Suddenly, our social lives start dissipating as people run from the awe of our energy fields. Those who stick around are often the ones that drain us even further. I couldn’t take it anymore and I chose to see the ocean again.
This book is more than a guide, it’s a method to walk with your head held high again. I’ve included the sectors of my life that suffered the most under pessimism. I’ve added all my notes and evidence-based techniques to bring ourselves back to the land of the living.
