If you want to be happier when things are rough, take action now to get things done. You cannot let the trials and tribulations of life keep you from doing the things you need to do in order to succeed. There will always be problems, there will always be reasons to let fear and depression paralyze you. Don’t let it, instead, take action now, especially if things are rough and you will be happier.
During the first episode of the television show “Lost,” one of the characters, a doctor gave his method for dealing with a horrible, stressful, life threatening situation. He gave himself five seconds to freak out, panic and do a little crazy. Then he suckered it up and went to work doing what needed to be done. It may sound crazy, but that five second thing works I real life.
Over the course of my life I have used it many times, during very serious problems and it works.

The best way to be successful in business is to work smarter rather than simply harder and #MyDataMyWay with Walmart Family Mobile helps me to work smarter. I am a Work at Home Mom aka WAHM. I am glad that I know about Walmart’s Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans, Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web, and Walmart Best Plans because these plans help me work smarter instead of just harder!
Like most work at home moms, I must find ways to leverage my time and get the most out of each hour in my day. There is a popular saying that a man works from sun to sun, but a woman’s work is never done. It may seem like that some days, but smart WAHMs learn ways to get more done in less time and with less money wherever possible. As a Walmart Family Mobile Ambassador, I have been blessed to receive a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone that helps me work smarter.
Once upon a time, cellular phones (as they were called way back when) were a luxury that only the wealthy used. Today the prices for smart phones and service plans are so inexpensive that even my son in middle school has a smart phone of his own.
My smart phone is a tool, a valuable tool that helps me run my business, care for my family and have a better life. Everyone who knows me knows that I believe working women can succeed and be happy with the right encouragement, inspiration and motivation and that is why I created my blog Janeane’s World. Because charity starts at home, I use my smart phone to motivate myself. Check out the following photo of the home screen on my smart phone.
Each time I pick up my phone I see the words and I am encouraged to do the work I need to do to reach my goals. If you a person who needs to get things done and affirmations or motivational quotes spur you to action pull out your smart phone and do search for them. With #MyDataMyWay and all that unlimited data it is easy to search, search and search some more to get just the motivation I need to help me to encourage, inspire and motivate myself so that I can encourage, inspire and motivate others.
It may not be possible to divide your time evenly between home and work but you can balance better if you learn to enjoy the good moments. So often when we are at work we feel guilty because we are not at home. Then, when we are at home or we take time away from work for family, we feel guilty for taking time off from work. What if instead, we enjoyed work when we are at work and enjoy home when we are at home?
Go to Work and Enjoy It, Let the Guilt Go
If you are a woman who works outside the home, guilt is often a constant companion. When you are at work you think about the things you need to do at home, the family events you are missing and if your family would be better off with you at home full-time. For some, the guilt is a constant nagging presence that never seems to go away. For others, the guilt is only noticeable when going to work means that a child’s school play is missed or dinner is served without mom being at the table. No matter which type of guilt you feel, let it go.
When you are at work, you will experience good things. There will be projects that are pulled off successfully. There will be raises, promotions and celebrations at work. Those are good things. Those are things you will want to celebrate and enjoy. Do it and don’t feel bad about it. Go to work, enjoy it and just let the guilt go.
