Ep #37: You’re Making Things Harder Than They Need to Be

Today’s topic is one that everyone struggles with – and it’s often something that goes unnoticed and unchecked. We make things harder on ourselves by allowing our emotional thoughts to determine the outcome of an unfavorable situation. Instead, we need to learn how to focus on the facts and the neutrality of a situation in order to allow the best outcome possible.

This concept is called Math vs. Drama and this episode highlights the many situations where it comes into play. By recognizing these situations and practicing a more rational thought process, we can actually change our lives and the lives of those around us pretty dramatically. Introducing thoughts like, “What if it’s easy?” or “Let’s just see how it turns out,” rather than trying to predict failure or frustration can be a game changer.
