The way we experience life is a reflection of our attitudes, thoughts, and behaviours.
We cannot control events that happen in the world. But we can control how we respond. The way we respond determines whether or not we have a happy and content life.
Today, right now, you have a choice.
You can be a victim. You can complain and get depressed that things aren’t turning out how you want.
Or you can change your perspective and see an opportunity to learn something. You may learn something about another person, or about how you should change something to improve it. Or you may learn something new about yourself, about your emotions, about what situations you perform best in.
In addition, by changing to a more positive and optimistic perspective you will attract more positive people and situations into your life.
By staying as a victim you will only attract more negativity which will confirm your negative belief patterns.
There is a solution hidden within every problem, and by staying curious and open-minded you will experience a lot more happiness in your day-to-day life.
So when the waves of life come crashing towards you, don’t give up and let yourself be pulled down by a negative attitude. Instead, surf the waves, and use them as an opportunity to improve your skills and grow your self awareness.
