Here's my question to you:
Have you ever tried something and the results didn't satisfy you? Or perhaps you were not even close to the results... the finish line...
Life Is That Way
As I observe life, nothing is permanent. We all have ups and downs. I still remember, coming from India, I never had much while growing up.
We were a family of four struggling.
But you know what? We were always grateful.
I went to a school by paying only $50 fee per year - not the best school there, you know - yet I was grateful to have access to education.
I never had the luxury to travel before - and now that I do? I am always grateful.
It's not just me. It is how my family has conditioned me since childhood: to see the light even in your darkest days, you know?
Which Is Why It All Starts With Your Mind!
Suppose you are sitting alone, clueless, and I bring a truck load of bricks. What will you do?
You can either bang your head on 'em and cry.
Not a pretty picture.
Or you can do something incredibly different:
Perhaps build a house with these bricks, right?
Sure, it's not a perfect house but it's a great example to show you how our mind really works.
If you can make that small shift in our mind, to see everything differently, while hoping for the best, the world truly becomes our playground. Especially in today's time, with the kind of technology we have, there's no reason to sit in the darkness anymore.
You will find plenty of light when:
You Promise Not To Give Up!
Yep! Never. Give. Up.
Which brings me to a very interesting quote from Vitas Gerulaitis:
"And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 times in a row" - Vitas Gerulaitis
Vitas never said he lost 16 times. He said no one beats him 17 times. Talk about putting a positive spin to life?
That's the way to live. Vitas never gave up. And most importantly? He saw it differently.
So if you have a problem today, sit down, think, and find a way to convert it into positive. Because, just doing this, will dramatically change the way you operate in life.
