Shayne on You: Start telling a new story

Hi Maggie,

Right now, I am going through the toughest time of my life. I recently lost my job and my husband is unable to work, due to cancer and a bloodclot on his brain. I am struggling to make a living with my writing, but lately, I just cannot find the peace to concentrate on my writing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, FS

Dear FS,

Not long ago, I was going through the toughest time of my life, and now I’m experiencing the best. I can only tell you that you are never creating more health for yourself than when you are ill, or more wealth than when you are broke, because you never want to a thing more than when you don’t have it. It’s the powerful desire that creates the new reality for you. And it’s the bad times that create the most powerful desires. Once those wishes are launched, we need to turn our focus away from what is, and focus upon what we’ve created. We need to look at the things we know are becoming for us, and stop looking at the things we’re leaving behind. You don’t start feeling better when life improves, life improves when you start feeling better.
