A Formula for True Empowerment

Someone with this perspective does not hold grudges, does not get down on himself, and does not accept a gloomy outlook. He moves on. He lets go. He works with the flow, not against it. Truth is, someone with this perspective would not worry about losing his job in the first place (i.e., would not hold that thought or aversion), and as a result, probably would not lose the job.

This is how powerful perspective and belief can be. It takes on two forms, thoughts and emotions, which when combined generate feeling that then manifests into perceived reality. Plug in any thought with any emotion and see what feeling you get. Or take any feeling you are having and trace it back to the thoughts you are holding in mind and the emotion you are using to fuel the thoughts. This may be one of the most profound exercises you ever do. You will learn that you do have control over your feelings.
