Engaging in the process – whatever that may be – and throwing your expectations out the window has always been a good recipe for me to not get discouraged and/or give up too quickly.

Often times, we have the ability to talk ourselves out of the game before it’s begun. Approaching our task – our goals – our challenges with the proper mental perspective can make all the difference.

What is that perspective? Staying neutral and diving deep into the process of doing. Of acting. Committing. No problems are resolved faster than when we are fully committed to engaging in the process with the intention of resolving it.

These are when the gem of ideas fill our mind as we arrive on the other side of our problem with grace and ease.
