Focus Shifting

What do you do when you are sad or depressed?  

I know what I do. I stay in the muck and mire for awhile. I live in it. And for some twisted reason I trick myself into thinking it's somehow better. I know it's not. But I think it's my human nature to simply go with what I feel in the moment and continue to feel sorry for myself. It's just too much work to climb out of the quicksand.

In today's podcast, I briefly explore what Focus Shifting means by sharing a powerful true story of a little boy. I think you will want to listen.
