Just when things you thought were going to be easy and smooth seas, you get struck by lightning. It’s a weird sensation but it happens. You know, maybe you didn’t get what you want, maybe you just had the worst day of your life, maybe a combination, but it makes no difference. That’s just life. It’s inevitable to hit bumps in the road every while but isnt that what makes life worthwhile? You might feel like going to sleep one day and hope to never wake up but everything will be here in the morning. Just when you’re on a free fall, someone will catch you. It happens.
You can spend, minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened – or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on.
“Unless your heart, your soul, and your whole being are behind every decision you make, the words from your mouth will be empty, and each action will be meaningless. Truth and confidence are the roots of happiness.”
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
“Some people love to lead. Some refuse to dance. Some play it safely, while others take a chance. Still, it’s a mystery, this place we call the world. Where most live as oysters, while some become pearls.”
