Why Aren’t YOU Using This Stress Relief Technique?

It’s unbelievable how many people let their negative feelings run
their life. And chances are…YOU are one of them. You’re about to
discover how to use a simple stress relief technique to live
HAPPILY when things don’t go your way….even if your life is
filled with conflict and turmoil right now…and you can’t see a
way out.

Are you a SLAVE to your circumstances? What I mean is; do you let
the ups and downs of life control how you feel inside? If you do,
don’t worry…you’re not alone.

Most people believe that it is the events that happen in life
that make you feel a certain way. For instance, you get a
promotion…you feel good. A plane crashes…you feel bad. But what
if that promotion added a significant amount of pressure to your
job which made each day more stressful than the next? And what if
the plane that crashed was an unmanned test plane built to save
thousands of lives?

Despite what you may have heard, events themselves have NO
MEANING. It’s true. It is not the events (the things that
happen) around you that control how you feel. It’s something else

If the circumstances in your life are not what make you feel good
or bad, then WHAT DOES? This is one of the key points in this
stress relief technique, so pay close attention….

It is NOT the people in your life OR the events that happen
around you that control the way you feel. Instead, the answer
is…YOU. Only YOU have the power to control your feelings.

I’ll prove it….

Imagine you’re laying in a hammock on vacation in Hawaii. It’s a
beautiful day and nothing could make the day any more perfect.
Then suddenly you get a call on your cell phone from your boss
with news that a major corporation has just bought out your
employer and hired a completely new staff…leaving you without a

Immediately your imagination becomes flooded with thoughts of
your endless search for a job. You picture bill collectors
‘knocking at your door’ demanding last months mortgage payment
and the bank coming to repossess your home…until almost instantly
you start to feel nauseous.

Did you read that last part about when you start to FEEL
nauseous? What’s happening in reality is you’re sitting on the
beach enjoying your vacation….but what’s happening in your
imagination is a series of negative images or ‘pictures’ caused
by this sudden turn of events.

Now how could that be? If events around you control the way you
feel…then how could you feel so miserable when in REALITY, you’re
laying in a hammock on a beautiful beach?

Simple. Because you let your imagination take over. Instead of
thinking about reality, (the beautiful day on the beach) your
mind was focused on the terrible images of what MIGHT happen when
you return from your vacation.

So what’s a better way to handle the situation? Simply follow
this stress relief technique and change the ‘picture’ in your
imagination. Just think how you’d feel if, instead of dwelling on
the negative events that MIGHT happen in the future, you thought
of something positive instead.

Rather than instantly reacting to an event, just change the
‘picture’ in your imagination using this simple stress relief
technique. You can do this by thinking of a good memory from your
past that makes you feel warm and secure.

Now I know you may be thinking…“Yeah right, easier said than
done”, but just think of the benefit of doing this…

Let’s say you receive the bad news from your boss, and instead of
letting yourself get worked up over it, you follow this stress
relief technique and think of your most cherished memory in
life….the one that instantly makes you feel good. How can you
feel miserable when you’re basically ‘reliving’ this comforting
moment from your past? You can’t! That’s the power of this stress
relief technique!

You’ll immediately start to feel very good because you’re
‘reliving’ your wonderful memory in your imagination.

Make no mistake: I’m not telling you to be completely oblivious
of the problems around you, but the bottom line is this: you can
only make rational decisions when you’re thinking CLEARLY. And
how do you expect to think clearly when your imagination is
filled with negative ‘pictures’ that create stress, fear and

What it all boils down to is this…if you let the ups and downs of
life control your thoughts and feelings, you’re destined for a
very unhappy and unproductive life. This stress relief technique
will not only help you replace your negative thoughts with more
positive ones, but you’ll also be able to LEARN from your
experiences, instead of dwelling on them.

and easily eliminate your negative thoughts, STOP dwelling on
your problems and START feeling better about yourself. Just go to
