When you CHANGE the way you THINK, you can CHANGE the way you FEEL.

I thought of you when I read this quote from “Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety” by David D. Burns –

“I’m not arguing that every time you think you’ve failed, you’re fooling yourself. We all have our share of real failures and setbacks. I know for sure that I do. I’ve actually had the opposite experience at times as well—workshops that I thought were fantastic when I got slammed in the evaluations. And that can be pretty painful. What I am saying is that your feelings will result from your thoughts and not from what actually happened. And when you’re feeling depressed and anxious, your thoughts will almost always be negative and distorted. But here’s the good news, which I’m repeating: When you CHANGE the way you THINK, you can CHANGE the way you FEEL. And this can happen really fast.”

QUOTE (emphasis mine):


NOTE (my commentary)


What gets my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?
Do I understand the potential solution?
Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
