Many people believe that their life is mostly controlled by outside forces. From winning the lottery to getting laid off at work…it may sometimes seem like we’re just along for the ride as our fate is decided by random events. But this couldn’t be further from the truth.
While events will occur that impact us in different ways, what will truly matter in our life is our reactions to these events. When hit with a tough situation, a person has the choice to react positively and with motivation, or negatively and with despair. And choosing to react one way or another definitely affects that person’s life further down the road.
Keeping this in mind can help our daily lives as well, even when nothing notable is happening. If our thoughts are negative all day, you can bet we will see the world as a gloomy, miserable place. But if we change our mindset, anything in the world is possible.
