The Benefits Of Recognizing What Drives Us Crazy
When we ignore the things that drive us crazy we build up stress and resentment in our bodies and it overflows into our results. For those of us that are creating Bigger more powerful Results in our lives and business, we can no longer allow those Feelings to get stuffed into our minds. If you are like me at all, You may have chosen to ignore these icky feelings because You have been told that you should focus on the Positive.
I must stress to you that Focussing on the Positive IS STILL a REQUIREMENT for Success, However, we should give ourselves the Gift of Getting the negatives we experience Out of our mind by RECOGNISING them.
This week, I want to encourage you to Take note of the things that bother you as you go through your days. *Note: This is not a bitch-fest or a complaining session that we all engage in from time to time. This is a RECOGNISE and RELEASE practice to help you Put those negatives in their proper place.

HOW do I do it?
Using an App like Evernote or even a little notebook, Take the time to note something that bothers you when it Bothers you. Then Ask yourself How you can Hold that with Kindness and Compassion. Remove the Source of that Bother and Take responsibility for the Way that Bother makes you feel.
Let Me Give You an Example.
If you are eating with a coworker at lunch and you find that way they chew their food Highly Irritating, take a mental note that it bothers you.

At the end of each day, flesh out your overall survey of thoughts for the day.  Try to uncover any vague or partially hidden thoughts that were behind the feeling of conflict, upset or distress you were considering. As an aid to seeing these, you might ask yourself the following questions:
- What person or situation appears to be at the center of this emotion?
- What does this person or situation symbolize to me? What do they represent or remind me of?
