Why Think Positive?
When things go wrong, remember:
It’s not WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU that matters most, It’s HOW YOU THINK about what happens to you.
Let’s say that you are at the airport, waiting to catch a flight, and the airline tells you, “Sorry! Mechanical trouble. You won’t be leaving for three hours!”
You are furious. You tell yourself:
“This is terrible! This is a disaster!”
While you remain stressed, things will get worse! People will trip over you, spill coffee in your lap and lose your baggage.
When you fight life, life always wins!
Then finally you cool down. You tell yourself:
“There’s nothing I can do about it. I’ll make the most of it.” Suddenly, everything changes!
From nowhere an old friend appears, or you make a new friend, or you stumble on a fresh opportunity and life begins to support you.
Once we change our thoughts about a
“bad situation”, we can take advantage of it.
Life’s great opportunities mostly arrive disguised as misfortune and disaster.
