Harness The Power of Intangibles

As effective as we are in this turbulent times, we somehow manage get results we wanted.

Whether in work, school or at home.

Question is "at what cost?"

If our mind is set to an unhappy state, we will get a result that are not needed.

In short, the intangible state of our mind is directly proportional to good result.

Something we easily miss out.

A couple of weeks ago I became worried. We will welcome our first child a few months from now. Work is hectic. Money is also a problem. I became counter productive because I mismanage not only my emotions but also my health.

My mind is the only thing I relied to. It always encourage me to "fight the good fight".

It wasn't enough.

Then came a breaking point. I was out for 7 days. Stayed in the hospital for 3 days and 4 daya at home. I felt bad.

Yet I recovered quickly by maintaining the "fight the good fight" attitude, healthier lifestyle and smart financial budgeting.

All fell into place as I performed better at work.

My suggestions to all who felt the same way as I have are,

No your Limits. It may sound negative at first but you are just being true to yourself. If you know (and admit) your weakness and strength then you are in the right direction. The key here are the little things inside of you that stops you from reaching a goal.

Ask for help. There's nothing wrong with asking for assistance. Even the strongest person has an ally. A very strong support group like families and friends are where you can start.

Provide help. If asking for help is a good thing, helping is better. You will notice a surge of 'feel good' feeling after you have helped someone in need. It doesn't have to be a burning building saving life situation.

Embrace stress. In this high times, stress is everywhere. It is how you react that matters. If you can make an action plan whenever a stressful situation happens then that's better. Imagine in your mind a stressful scenario, then imagine how you will react.

The unseen things around us are the tools that made up what we see now. Don't underestimate the power of the intangibles. They matter as much as the results.
