Well today I was at a retail location promoting a new Retail Party Pro and I dropped my phone and broke it. Its so funny, Poppie and I were just having a conversion earlier this week about having a cell phone for 20 years and never breaking one. Honestly, I was feeling a little impressed with myself.
I know you are asking yourself, "so Nancy, why is this important in any kind of way that relates to me. Sorry you broke your phone but thats life and why you have insurance on it".
Well I am happy you asked my friend. For quite some time I have been working on my mindset and how I react or respond to things. I have been steadfastly working on becoming the orchestrator of my thoughts and not being lead by my subconscious mind or popular thought consciousness.
When I first dropped it and realized it was broke, I just calmly picked it up and said "My phone broke". That was it. No emotion at all. Then about 30 seconds later, the thoughts tried to kick in telling me I should be upset. I even spoke it out loud, " Oh I guess I should be sad, I broke my phone". This is what my mind tried to tell me was a normal response to dropping my $700 phone and cracking it into a million pieces.
It was as I was speaking this, that I knew I had a choice to choose how I would feel and I chose to just go on with my wonderful day and not have any negative emotional response to it at all. I believe that by mastering our thoughts and how we respond to each and every situation in life opens the door to reaching new levels of happiness and success that wouldn't be available to us otherwise!
God Bless you all!
