“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” — Viktor E. Frankl
Dwelling on the past and letting your mind be consumed by your circumstances will not get you close to a resolution. Accept the past and allow It to transform your future. Change starts with you.
“To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.” — Gail Sheehy
See your situation not as a failure or fear or pain or the world out to get you, but rather see It as a challenge. The way you paint your obstacles matter. ‘Being unlucky’ or ‘drawn the short straw’ etc gives your power to your circumstances. But deciding to take on the challenge of your situation puts the ball back into your court.
“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” — Roger Crawford
There’s always a way through. We can’t take away hard days, but we can flip them on their head by letting them be catalysts for improve and greatness. It’s okay to feel down and out sometimes, but never let hopelessness control you. You might not have an answer to your problems RIGHT NOW, but that doesn’t mean you never will.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
And wherever you are, keep smiling 🙂
