Desperate People Do Desperate Things.

4 Steps to Avoid Emotional Decisions.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

We find that in the most desperate times of life we make some of the poorest choices.

For example:

  • When you finally slid as far down the hill as you can go in your health and wellness and make desperate, radical choices in order to get to where you think you should be.
  • When you are destitute and don’t think you have anywhere to go and you start making life and job decisions that are against who you really are or that make you miserable.

What to do:

  1. Don’t get stuck in the pity cycle; letting the momentum of things that make you feel bad take control. Take over. You can stop the spin!
  2. Listen to the positive inner voice. Not the one that gives excuses, or the naysayers around you.
  3. Know who you are when you are emotionally strong. This gives us a pillar to ground ourselves.
  4. Focus on the best of you, not the worst.

You CAN do it. You WILL make positive life choices. Be mindful of what you are running to, not just what you are running from.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
