3 Steps to Change a Negative Mindset

<img src="mindset.jpg" alt="Mindset" width="300" height="200">

Change your mindset in 3 steps

Even if you are the party that initiated the split, a divorce is more often than never a bag filled with mixed emotions. No matter the reason, there are many changes that follow a divorce, like new living arrangements, time with your kids, and your finances are sure to take a hit. Even relationships with mutual family and friends will be severely compromised. Nevertheless, like any other big change that might occur in our lives, it can also open a space for you to reinvent your life. You can start living according to your own priorities, your own goals, and your own wishes. No matter what your problem is, be it divorce, or failed friendships, or financial problems, there are ways to turn your frown upside down. Here are 3 simple steps that one can take in order to change your mindset.

1. Seek the help of a professional – If you are overwhelmed with emotion and it feels like you are unable to manage them, a counselor will be a great source to gain the perspective of a third party that is not personally involved in your situation.

2. If negative thinking cycles persist, stop them. Start by processing what happened, and then determine what your part in the incident was. Make peace with the outcome and start looking for a solution. Doing all of this will assist you as you move forward. If the negative thinking sucks you in, try to imagine a big X through the thought. Say cancel, or stop out loud. You can even slam your fist on a table when you do this to make it more effective.

3. Imagine what the future you want looks like and go for it. Know exactly what your goals and dreams look like for the future. Start imagining this is as much detail as you can and also what your plans are in order to achieve them. Taste it, feel it, know what it sounds like and smell it up as if you were there already. The more you are able to focus on this, the quicker you will be able to draw these thoughts into your reality, letting go of all the negative thinking by default.

There are so many things in life that tend to tear us down or make us feel negative about the world around us. We need to capture these negative thoughts and replace them with beautiful images of whatever makes us happy.

Positive thinking!

Which digital operating system for the future?

<img src="digital operating system.jpg" alt="Digital operating system" width="300" height="198">

Which digital operating system (DOS) for your Smartphone?

We have built a rather intimate relationship with our smartphones. In some ways more intimate than the relationship with a partner or spouse. The phone has become our digital life support system.

Electronic companies are waging a war and the weapons are ‘new and improved’ gadgets, but the most important battle is about the digital operating system. You remember the hassles when you switched from BlackBerry to Samsung which uses the Android digital operating system. When you now upgrade within the same operating system, you merely have to type in your gmail account and password. As a result of cloud computing, in two ticks, all your data including contacts, pictures and apps will be transferred.

Switching digital operating system discouraged

Should you switch to another operating system, will result in repurchasing ad reloading all the apps from your old operating system. Just too much hassles for some of us!

The apps and data retention is not the only factor. Smartphones are becoming the guards to our extended connected world.
Your digital operating system and the future

In the near future, the smartphone will be the remote control for things in the home. We’ll be switching on lights and heating systems on the way home, not to enter the house in the dark and immediately get in a hot shower. The more we use a smartphone to instruct appliances, the more vital it will be to stay within the same digital operating system.

Google and Android have established a partnership with car manufacturers Audi, Honda, Hyundai and General Motors. Apple has aligned with Mercedes, BMW, Chevrolet, Nissan, Jaguar, Volvo and Ferrari. They developed the ‘InCar’ system which is now a standard feature on all Apple products. Now that’s confidence in the future of their operating system!

Fenced into a digital operating system

Slowly and very subtly users are being ensnared into a operating system. The prediction is that Android, Apple and Microsoft will prevail and take us into the future. Now is the time to choose which operating system you prefer, because it is steadily becoming too big a hassle to swop one for another.

Oscar Pistorius: A Look at his Life

<img src="Oscar Pistorius.jpg" alt="Oscar Pistorius" width="137" height="93">
Oscar Pistorius arriving at court

What the people in Oscar’s life revealed about his character

Just a while before that tragic evening when Oscar’s life changed forever, he spoke to Mr. Bill Schroder, former head teacher at Pretoria Boys High School which Pistorius attended. Schroder wonders how the pressure Oscar was under all the time, affected his mind and reported that Oscar said  on occasion it would be so nice just to be ordinary.

Pistorius experienced huge trauma at age 15, when his mother died. Oscar, his older brother, Carl, and younger sister, Aimee, were much closer to their mom than their dad, according to Schroder. To lose their mother in an already broken home, must have been hell to cope with.  It was a critical episode of his childhood and Pistorius battled to come to terms.

Did he ever process it or is he still carrying emotional scars and the fear of losing the woman in his life? Would Oscar have been a different man if he had had a closer bond with his father to set the example? Or is it a case of like father like son, as far as relationships with women are concerned, except that Oscar would rather shoot than separate?

Schroder is of the opinion that the spotlight may have been too bright for Oscar. Fame brings power and power corrupts. Did Oscar Pistorius want ultimate power?

The materialistic Oscar

Pistorius loves material possessions, such as expensive cars, luxurious homes, race horses, exotic animals and trendy clothes. Was a girlfriend or more specifically, Reeva Steenkamp, seen as one of his possessions?

Uncle Arnold Pistorius reportedly said that Reeva and Oscar had plans together. Did Reeva know about those plans? Arnold also implied that Oscar was happier in his private life than he had been for a long time. So, before Reeva, was he unhappy for a long time?

Dr. Versveld, his orthopedic surgeon said he warned Oscar to cut down on his activities. He did everything that everyone else did. Was that a case of being driven to impress or trying to keep up with the latest beat? What is/was chasing Oscar Pistorius?

Relations with the opposite sex

Trish Taylor, mother of Samantha Taylor, an ex girlfriend of Oscar is glad that her daughter was not in his clutches any more. Could it be that Pistorius held her captive in some way and what did he do to Sammy? Reportedly, Sammy knew all about Oscar’s dark side and told a newspaper that he wasn’t the way people thought of him. What kind of person is he?

Reeva Steenkamp was supposed to give a speech to schoolchildren on the day she died at the hand of her lover, about an abusive family relationship she experienced.

Was it abuse that ended her life?
