It's not so much the conditions in our lives that determine our fate - those are only the variables.
It is having a VISION - that is what gives us the fuel to keep moving forward.
It is having the awareness that we can choose; how we think, what we say and how we behave in our everyday life.
So you see, it is never about the "semitrailer" that just "happen" to knock you down to the ground ...
It is all subjective - you can see it as a "truck" hitting you or you can view it as a wake up call ...
It all depends upon which kaleidoscope you are looking through. In other words; we each CHOOSE how to relate to what happens to us.
Everyone goes through difficulties, failures and disappointments in life.
Once we accept that as being an undeniable truth, it becomes much easier to deal with whatever comes our way.
If you have a goal or a vision to look forward to and you have confidence and faith that you can attain it, nothing can stir you away from it.
It is the important to have a reason to wake up in the morning, otherwise life becomes a never ending battle.
"Do not become a dingy drifting in rough waters" - allow your goal, purpose, vision to be your guiding light, leading you to safety.
