Life is full of ups and downs. Most times it seems like there are more downs than ups. However, the great thing about being human and having a mind is that we can make choices. The choices you make are extremely important. They can determine if you’ll have a bad day or not. They can determine whether you stay stuck or become unstuck.

The downs in life will always be there. They’ll be there tomorrow. They’ll be there next week. They’ll be there in 5 years…

However, they can stop being there if you wish.

By consciously looking for the good in situations, the learning experiences to be had in seemingly mundane activities, the ability to keep a balanced mind at times where others would flip, means you’ll be happier for longer, and more likely to achieve what it is you want to.
