The basic idea of karma is that what you put out into the world, you receive back in turn. A similar concept is that whatever you’re looking for, that’s what you’re going to find. How many times have you gone into a situation expecting the worst, and you find that the situation meets your expectations? What would happen if you went into a situation expecting a positive outcome (or at least, lowering your expectations in general)?

We’re all going to have times in our lives when we have to deal with bad situations, such as death, job loss, the end of a relationship, and failures or perceived failures. How we experience these bad situations largely comes down to how we perceive them; our attitude can make a major difference. Either we rise to the challenge and push forward to fight another day, or we sink down into the negativity and find that it takes us much longer to come out on the other side.

If I asked you if you had enough, what would you say? Your question back to me would probably be – enough of what? If I said bills, obligations or meetings at work your response would probably be “Yes — I have more than enough.” But if instead I listed, money, time or vacation days, most would answer with an emphatic “No!”

The problem with the question (and the answer) is that enough is a subjective measurement. What may seem like more than enough for one person may not be anywhere close to enough for another. What was enough for you today may not be enough for you tomorrow. Enough is a moving target. And ultimately, this is both the good news and the bad news.
I have always been a positive person. I am not sure if I was born with that outlook, or if I just developed it as a result of a wonderful upbringing. But regardless, I have learned over the years that there is amazing power in positive thinking.
