PA: What advice would you give to those individuals who going through tough times due to the downfall in the economy?
Georgia Woodbine: I recommend people using this time as a stepping stone and opportunity to evaluate where the are in their lives and where they are trying to go. I am a firm believer that after the storm hits the sun will rise again. It’s all about our perceptions and how we look at things. If we look as the economy and continue to speak that things are getting worse then every move we make will be lead by negative energy and negative thoughts expecting the worst to happen and of course that will be the outcome.
We need to look around us and say how can I stretch my average way of thinking and look around and see what good will come out of all these transitions that are taking place. We need to focus on what we can do differently to adjust to the temperature change of the economy and look around at the true meaning of living and not merely existing and ask ourselves: what have I done with my life, my time, my money and my resources to make a difference in the world.
PA: Do you recommend daily meditation?
Georgia Woodbine: Absolutely, In order the keep our mind free from all the baggage and junk we feed it everyday we have to consistently exercise positive self-talk. Speaking Affirmations is a powerful tool that will create the life you want. I speak from personal experience. Of course, this will take constant reminding and retraining of our mindset and thought process. Your affirmations should focus on what you want – not what you don’t want. Your affirmations will work best when they are linked to your greater life goals. The heavy resistance that’s keeps us back is fear of oneself and fear of the unknown. The unknown doesn’t have to be a bad thing, often times it’s a blessing in disguise.
PA: Have you ever been through a tough period in your life?
Georgia Woodbine: There have been so many times in different stages of my life that I experienced unexpected blows and circumstances that totally caught me off guard. I lost so many things and when things are being abruptly snatched away from you, the first reaction we usually get is to panic. But when you reinvent your thought patterns and redirect your mind to draw positive energy from your pain. It will allow you to evolve into spiritual strength, growth and freedom.
PA: How did you handle the situations?
Georgia Woodbine: I fought very hard to retrain my thought process. It’s almost like your in a battlefield of the mind with yourself. I maintained my focus on all the good things that happened to me and associated the feelings that came with them. I kept replaying those thoughts in my mind like a tape recorder. Every time I would get down on myself, or get disappointed, I would stop and tell myself this is not where I want my mind to go and I would wheel myself back to my thoughts and feelings of where I wanted to be.
Of course, it’s not an easy thing to do when all of your life someone somewhere has influenced your outlook on life telling you what to think, what to do and what you should be focused on achieving. But we have to relearn how to think outside our current reality, how to do things with the resources we have and how to achieve the things that are best suited with our natural gifts, skills and abilities.
PA: What are some of the early lessons that you have learned in life to help you cope with a world that is constantly changing?
Georgia Woodbine: I have learned that nothing stays the same. Things have transpire in order for transformation to occur. If things don’t shift or move we can’t grow as individuals. Coping is something we have to do to survive. We can’t allow anything to get so bad that we lose hope and want to give up. The are so many great things ahead that awaits us even though we go through the tribulations and the pain. We spend so much time trying to figure out what happened to our lives and why? Whatever you are going through will not last forever, this too shall pass.
PA: You have a new book Jewels of Inspiration and Reflections that helps people get through difficult times. Could you tell readers a little about what they can expect when they purchase your book?
Georgia Woodbine: I always refer to Jewels of Inspirations and Reflections: The Journey of Life as a book of hope. This book is about turning your pain into purpose and allowing your god given genius to come out. The words of wisdom and affirmations in this book offer encouragement and illustrates how to reinvent yourself and redirect your mind to draw positive energy, so you can enjoy your life while you are here. It’s about using your hidden personal power to overcome your problems.
PA: How can your first book “How to Make Big Buck$ without Selling Your Soul Help” those who are struggling with tough times and the threat of having to change careers without a choice?
Sometime we only move when we have to move. Many times we get so used to being in our comfort zone that unless something forces you out of your job or situation we would always stay stagnant. How To Make BIG BUCK$ Without Selling Your Soul is a great step-by-step resource and provides practical information that can be used for personal, spiritual, and business development. Written to help people who are searching for greater life goals, this easy-to-read handbook taps into; making positive changes, moving from unfulfilling careers and dead-end relationships, to creating wealth without sacrificing your moral values.
PA: How important is mental toughness as it relates to getting through day to day struggles?
Georgia Woodbine: Mental toughness is absolutely necessary for anything you are trying to achieve in your life.
You don’t have to be born with mental toughness, it’s something you can learn and train yourself to do. It’s always good to look for the circle of people that exude positive energy and spend time with those type of people. It says in the bible “As a man thinketh, so is he”. We have to focus and concentrate on the things we want to change, not the things that seem to remain the same. Even if it means finding one good thing in your day that happened to make you feel excited, happy and joyous. We have to keep that good thing as our area of focus instead of lasering on all the things that go wrong, We have to focus on the present and do what’s necessary now and not dwell on the mishaps of yesterday. By changing your mind, you can begin to heal the world around you and perceive your "work" on this planet in a much different way.
There was a treatment developed by neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl called LOGOTHERAPY. Logotherapy is derived from the Greek word “logos” which is defined as meaning, inner, understanding , of the universe logic, higher good. Frankl developed his approach before the second world war, he was a holocaust survivor and applied this theory while imprisoned in a concentration camps. Frankl concept is based on the idea that our primary motivational force is to find meaning in our life.
I love what Viktor Frankl said: he said “They can take us from almost everything, our health our prosperity, our freedom and even those dearest to us – except for one thing the freedom to decide how to react to our situation in life. We are the masters of our own fate, not its victims.”
