But life isn't perfect, and it isn't easy, so learning how to manage your moods and emotions is the best way to keep picking yourself up.
When you're able to control how you feel, without depending on others, then you're guaranteed to have the happiest life - no matter what crosses your path.
I often say how dwelling on thoughts from the past is responsible for blocking your future. The more you recognize how your subconscious thoughts constantly flit through your mind, and know not to pay attention to those that make you feel bad, the more you can choose which thoughts to allow.
Don't resist or reject negative memories as they come along, just accept them, breathe deeply, and they will pass on by in a few seconds.
This is how you can prevent your body from becoming stressed, so you can manage your health when you manage your thoughts.
Letting go peacefully of bad experiences with ZPoint isn't about eradicating your past. It's about detaching yourself from the way it still hurts you, and affects you today.
This gives you the freedom to choose whatever makes you happy, without the sadness dragging you down - even if you don't think you're thinking about it - it's always there!
Now you can consciously decide what to place your attention on - and select the memories from your past that made you feel great.
You can remember a time when you did really well at something. I won an autograph book when I was around 8 for collecting the most wild flowers, pressing them, and naming each one. I never used the book, even when Elton John came to my very small home town, but I will never forget how great it felt to win that prize.
Even if the memory seems as small as mine, if it makes you feel good - focus on those feelings, and tell yourself you are a winner! Take the time to collect all the details, the smells, the sounds - it's easy to make them feel real again when you're deeply relaxed with the ZPoint Process, and recall the words of praise.
You will boost your confidence, which motivates you to keep going towards the goal you've chosen to follow. We all need boosting, and you can repeat this as often as you like, until you lose any doubts that you can achieve whatever you aim for.
Special memories lift your spirits up when you meet a challenge, so write them down in a journal, and pick one like a jewel when you need to restore sparkle and brightness back into your day.
No matter how hard your past was, you will be able to find small chinks of light in the form of kindness - hold those close, and you won't have room for the darker memories.
