A person who is at peace is someone who always approaches each situation with an empowering attitude.
Life is full of events and circumstances—some are good and some are overwhelming and unmanageable. Regardless of the situation, the only thing we can control is the attitude of how we choose to respond. Ask yourself, “Will I allow this person or situation to upset me?” “Will I choose to stay or walk away?” “Will I choose to yell or whisper?” “Will I choose to react or take the time to respond, and if so, how?” Things are neutral up until the point we give them meaning.
When there is adversity in our lives, it’s important to look at the gift it offers. Each challenge, experience, and circumstance presents us with a special gift if we choose to open our eyes, mind, and heart to receive it. We can then decide what we’re going to do next because what we focus on is a reflection of what goes on in our lives.
There are times we need to recognize the hard truth that changing a situation isn’t always possible, or simply not possible at that particular time. We can’t always change the circumstances and we definitely can’t erase the past, but we can change our attitude and how we respond. Use your response as a sense of stepping into your power.
Change things from the inside out by choosing an attitude that moves you forward, which will ultimately allow you to grow beyond the struggles you can’t control.
We have the ability to choose the attitude we want no matter the situation. Take action instead of being in reaction as you flip that switch and shift into your greatest and highest expression of self.
You are the director of your own life’s journey; make sure you’re happy with the destination.
To Your Success,
