Be solution-oriented, not problem focused

If the world is getting you down, remind yourself to focus on what is within your power to control & be solution-oriented, not problem-focused (& if you can help others, do so).

Feeling overwhelmed is a sign that you’re focusing on things that are beyond your power to control.

Find what you love

If someone creates content — whether it’s music, videos, art, comics, or words — and you don’t like it, don’t understand it, or don’t find any value in it, maybe it wasn’t meant for you.

There are over 7.5 billion people on the planet — all with different preferences, opinions & levels of understanding — not everything anyone creates is intended for every single person on the planet.

It is perfectly possible to go in search of what you love in life without disparaging, mocking, or criticizing all the things you discover on your journey that you don’t.

Problem-finding as a sport

Some treat problem-finding like it’s a sport to win. But finding & highlighting problems is easy. Complaining is easy. Mocking & belittling people and/or their efforts is easy.

What isn’t as easy? Being solution-oriented instead of problem-focused & leading by example — & with love.

And you will.

Stop beating yourself up and focus on the positive actions you can take and push forward.

You’ve got this.
