According to Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret, we should look for the good in every single thing even if it appears to be negative:
“If we can know that good is all there is, then we will see a negative situation transform into all good. Most people keep the good away from themselves because they label something as bad, and then, of course, that becomes their reality. But there is no bad in the Universe; it is just our inablity to see things clearly from a bigger perspective.”
Here’s an example of how this bit of advice helped me: I’ve had a lot of computer problems just recently, with endless “blue screen of death” crashes. This lead to me experimenting with lots of free system management programs in an attempt to fix the problem.
In the process I’ve come across such little gems as WinPatrol which not only takes up little resources, but will do a whole bunch of things including monitor your PC for unexpected changes, check for spyware, and get your machine up and running a lot faster by delaying non-essential startup programs by up to an hour.
Other useful stuff I found included FixIt Utilities 7, easy-to-use diagnostic and maintenance tools, FCleaner, an all-in-one optimization tool, Quick Startup, which will give you more information and control over processes running in the background, and AlertThingy2, a really useful application for displaying the latest updates from all your social networks.
So, even though I may not of got to the root of my problem yet, the negative situation has led me on a fantastic voyage of discovery, and I now have some great new software installed.
