As an example of this, if you feel overwhelmed for any reason, instantly think of something else. If you always feel super happy when you see your baby's smiling face, think of your baby's smiling face when you feel overwhelmed. That will directly change your emotion.
2. Stop laying the blame on other people, and start accepting responsibility yourself for your own life. Whatever situation that you are facing in the life that you are leading right now, is most likely because of actions that you took, and decisions that you made previously, and so do not blame anybody else. Once you can reconcile yourself to this fact, you can come to the inevitable conclusion that your life is in your own hands and its you that has the power to change it for the better. Always remember that the past does not have to equal the future.
3. Start educating yourself1 Start that process by reading books, or listening to audios from self development experts. Education in this area most definitely will help, and if you can afford it, invest in a program or course by one of these experts to help you to speed up your progress in the area you desire.
