One way to lessen the stress of problems like debt is to focus on and
celebrate the solution to a problem. Visualise yourself celebrating being
debt free and then take action to help make this freedom a reality.

Recently, I spoke to a friend who seemed knowledgeable about bullet
wounds. I don't how much evidence he has for his views but they seem to
make sense.

People are conditioned to believe that if they get hit by a bullet they
will die. They think to themselves:

"I've been shot; I will die."

Films show us people dropping dead from a single bullet wound and our
subconscious takes all this in and starts believing a bullet means death.
When we are hit by a bullet we think death is on its way and we die.

A policeman in the USA shot himself in the foot and died. On the other
hand a criminal was pumped full of over twenty bullets and was still
firing back at the police.
No one had told him that you died from a single bullet wound. Either
that, or he was on drugs and did not know what was going on.

People who do understand bullet wounds are less likely to die because
they know that not all bullet wounds are fatal. Their extra knowledge can
save their lives.

In Africa, the locals can survive horrendous crocodile bites. They have
not been told that such bites will kill them. They just sew up their
mutilated flesh and return to their fishing when they feel better.

We in the West are not so tough although we used to be. Must of us are
conditioned to believe we will get weak and feeble as we age but there
exist individuals who are far stronger than those who are twenty years
younger than them.

They have refused to accept weakness and have kept exercising and looking
for ways to stay strong and even become stronger. Such men and women give
hope to us all.

We can manage the huge stress of ageing and of death through managing and
changing or at least altering our own beliefs.

Increased knowledge can also relieve stress although, occasionally, lack
of knowledge about what we can't survive or achieve may be our best
friend!

Increased knowledge about how our minds work will teach us not to dwell
on the negative aspects of our lives. We should take note of our problems
but not brood over them. Instead we should consider solutions and even
imagine how we would feel if the problem had been solved.

In other words, we should not pretend our problems do not exist. They are
usually only too real. We should not, however, waste good time and energy
worrying about them. Instead,let's take action now to solve them and keep
affirming and visualizing a happy outcome.
