How is it that people can have different reactions to the same situation? Being stuck in traffic, for example, can lead to some people feeling frustrated, stressed, even enraged, while others are perfectly content to hum along to the radio and tap the steering wheel to the beat while inching along the freeway.
The difference is attitude.
Life presents you with a variety of experiences and situations. Over time you have developed beliefs about what those experiences mean, and those beliefs have created an attitude, or set way of thinking. When you have a negative attitude about a certain situation, you will experience stress whenever that situation arises.
Stress has many negative effects mentally, emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. It can cause headaches, lack of sleep, overeating, depression, alienation, and if left unchecked, over time it can contribute to serious health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure.

During a powerful PSI Teleseminar, Basic facilitator, Tim O’Kelly, offered valuable insight on how you can shift your attitude about change and greet far as an old friend.
In the Basic Seminar, students get to experience how thoughts or beliefs dictate feelings, which in turn affect behavior. It is truly your thinking that influences every aspect of your life. Albert Einstein asserted that “the most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe”. What he meant by this is that whatever you believe dictates your reality. If you believe the world is hostile, you will take actions to protect yourself.
