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.
