The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion, it is very real, but in order for you to reach the light you have to change your thoughts and actions because if you continue to use your current thoughts and actions and expect things to change, you may be deemed insane; as Einstein put it, “the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting different results.”
Your thoughts are the first things you need to change; stop listening to negative stories that don’t impact on your personal life; the news shows on television should be avoided because, they start each show with, Good Day, and then spend an hour telling why it is not a good day. This doesn’t mean you ignore the world around you, read the headlines, if it doesn’t affect you personally, don’t read the story. Your view of the world will improve because of this.
The next step is to avoid negative people, the people that drain the very life out of you with their stories of how bad they have it, and how everybody is out to make their life hell. when you do this your view of other people will change, you will think they’re only positive people in the world and you’re one of them.
This positive attitude you’ve developed will permeate though you and you will make changes to your lifestyle because of it; you will exercise more because it makes you feel good; you will take notice of your diet because you need energy nutritious food to feed your new energetic lifestyle.
The positive new you will attract positive people into your life, and they will help you to reach the light you have almost forgotten because positive people are surrounded by light, they no longer need a telescope to see it at the end of the tunnel.
If you’ve spent years getting to where you are now, don’t expect miracles to happen overnight; it takes time, but eventually you will surrounded by the light.
