ARE YOU THE MASTER OR SLAVE OF YOUR PROBLEMS?
I own a number of rentals near where I live and recently I was speaking with one of my new tenants. She had been living in her new apartment for about a week, when she said to me, "I thought by moving into this new apartment that some of my old problems would disappear, but they haven’t."
It may appear strange that she would say that, yet many of us say similar things when we switch jobs, friends, spouses, or significant others. We expect that a new job or new boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse will make all of our problems disappear. The reality is that most of the old problems never existed at the old apartment, at the old job or with those whom we are in a relationship. The problems only existed in our minds.
Sometimes, we have a tendency to take many of our problems and blow them out of proportion, until the proverbial molehill becomes a mountain. We become a slave to the problem. The problem engulfs our thinking, and we search for answers or help from others or try to manipulate others without first looking inward to see why this "problem" exists - and why we are letting it bug us.

A MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT - FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT
There he is...twenty stories in the air. Nothing separates him from the ground but a small wire - tightly stretched between two buildings. The man is Karl Wallenda - the leader of the Great Wallendas - a famous tightrope-walking act.
For years, Wallenda had performed this stunt. Through focused concentration, combined with steel nerves, he did what most of us would never even think of doing - risking his life for the enjoyment and amazement of others. Wallenda once said, "Life is walking the wire; everything else is just waiting around."
He rarely had a problem while he was on the wire, except for one time in the late 60’s. Wallenda lost his life while walking the wire in Puerto Rico. He was walking between two high rises that were across the street from one another. The audience witnessed that he started out across the rope and got about half way to the other side, when all of a sudden, he stopped. Spectators watched Wallenda kneel down on the wire, teeter with the balance poll, and moments later, fall to his death.
His widow said that Wallenda had performed this similar feat hundreds of times and that he had always focused his mental energy into… simply, walking the rope. She said that for three months prior to this particular walk, all he had thought about was… not falling. For some reason, Wallenda tragically chose to focus on the wrong thing.
This story reminds us that we must always focus on what we want to happen and not on what we don’t want to happen. Look at your life (goal or situation) from a positive perspective. Visualize yourself being successful at what you want to achieve in other words, complete the task successfully in your mind… concentrate on a positive outcome and then… let your actions follow.
Wallenda’s story is powerful reminder about the importance of focus.
