I just read an excellent post on Leslie Householder’s blog. It was about prospering in spite of the state of the economy. I love it when I find other people who look for the positive in everything, instead of the negative.
Every situation, is just a situation. A situation is neither good nor bad. It is only how we look at it that makes it good or bad. Just like anything. A hammer is neither good nor bad. You can build a house with it or bang your finger with it. WE are what make any situation or tool good or bad.
We view our lives through our own personal perspectives (paradigms). How life looks depends on that perspective. Our perspective is like a pair of glasses. If we have put negative tinting on those glasses, we will see things negatively. If we have put positive tinting on those glasses, we will see thing positively.
It all comes back to choice. It is our choice whether life is good or bad. We see what we want to see. We see what we (and our environment) have trained ourselves to see. If life is looking bad, or scary, or depressing, or good, or happy, or prosperous, it is because that it how you choose to look at life.
Life is what we make it. What will you make of life? How do you choose to see life? Good or bad? It is all up to you.
