You donโ€™t need to agree with the alternative viewpoints, but you do benefit from hearing them and getting a better understanding of the entire picture.โฃ ย โฃ 2) Expand your education. Online classes are great for this one, especially because most involve some form of a financial investment that motivates you to complete the course.โฃ ย โฃ 3) Spend time with people who have been around longer than you and listen to what they have to say. Grandparents are decades more experience than you and nuggets of wisdom you could pick up.โฃ ย โฃ So, when you fell overwhelmed, pause and try to appreciate other ways of looking at the situation. Maybe youโ€™ll be able to find a less stressful or more positive way of looking at things.โฃ ย โฃ Link to post mentioned in the video can be found here. ย โฃ The Power of Now can be found here.
