Hi this is Joan and this is episode 55 of The Prosperity Show. Thanks for tuning in. Today we're going to talk about developing a winning point of view. But before we get to that, our main site is prosperityplace.com, where you can find lots of information to help you help yourself improve your relationship with money. And you'll also find information about my book, "Build your Money Muscles-9 Simple Exercises for Improving your Relationship with Money." I know I had said that I was going to talk about different ways to make money, and I had planned on doing that. But I got an email this morning, and I realized that I really needed to answer a question that the person who wrote the email asked, because it applies to so much of what you are probably struggling with. And by looking at this, it'll help you move forward financially. And certainly if you want to find ways of making money, you're going to have incidents like, we're going to call him Steve, had. And this will help you deal with the consequences and the pitfalls that come along in life. And what happened was that Steve was working on a deal for his business, and it fell through. And he mentioned in the email why it went through, and how it just didn't go right, and he was blaming himself and blaming the other person. And he just didn't know quite how to deal with it. And he said, "Do you have any suggestions on how to release the pain, and how to put this mess into perspective. I feel guilty for letting the other person do what he did, and I feel ashamed of my behavior." And I have a feeling that a few of you have had similar feelings when you've done something, you've wanted something, you had hopes for something, you've been working on something, and it falls through. And not be able to put it in perspective, so that you don't have to go into this depressed blame, sad space. So I'm going to share with you how I deal with this. There are probably other ways of doing it. But I certainly have found it successful over the years in dealing with a lot of things. As I've told many of you, I've dealt with a lot of physical stuff, and I had all sorts of financial problems for many years, and I'm in business for myself, and when you're in business for yourself, things don't always go the way you want them to. So I think that your attitude and your philosophy as to how you're going to deal with life, rally makes a difference. And first of all, the base thing that I believe is that everything is in order. That there's nothing that happens that isn't supposed to be happening. We may not like what's happening, but we also have no idea...
