The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion.
The tunnel is –
Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out. ~John Wooden
Wow what a powerful quote. It is inevitable that negative things in life will happen but perspective becomes a choice. Can you take a bad situation and find the positive part of the scenario.For example, you get a flat tire on the freeway and are late to work. This is the beginning of a disastrous morning – can anything get worse you add. Well the towing company comes and fixes your tire and you are off to work. When you get there all your co-workers were worried frantically as they heard there was a pileup on the freeway and a few people were seriously injured. You turn on the news to find out that you were on that same freeway broken down and the mile was a mile ahead of you and happened just about the same time you travel through that area every day. The ending of that scenario is – yes you had a flat tire but that may have been the universes way of preventing you from being in serious pileup on the freeway.
Being able to put things into perspective and envision a lighter side of life is easier to carry than all the negative burdens experienced on a daily basis. No matter how much you believe to be in control of things, true control is only a mirage.
Believe And Act As If It Were Impossible To Fail – Charles Kettering
True progress and achievements are in the hands of those that move forward without the hesitation of fear. Fear is the culprit of mediocrity. Setting your mind on a goal even when it sounds too good to be true allows one to reach to their highest potential. How else will a person be able to live up to their intended greatness unless they try endlessly. Yes there are failures in some endeavors though that just helps to change the course; don’t be so quick to pull out the white flag signaling surrender. It is easy to be misguided and fall off our paths but one must listen to the indicators that suggest doing something different. Those failures are not important, overall just roadblocks that points one toward the finish line. Believe the ultimate and turn against those that say you cannot and look toward those that cheer you on your way. Those individuals can see your potential and is not afraid nor do they compare it to their potential – so look toward their guidance. They are not intimidated by your abilities and can steer you in the right direction or be that cheering section when needed. Those are the ones that truly see something special that you should allow to blossom. Don’t focus on failure instead see all things as small successes even in times when they don’t work out. Just try again. Failure is momentary but success comes from continuing on without regard to it at all.
All progress takes place outside the comfort zone
