"Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things."
Henry Ward Beecher
It can be oh so easy to get discouraged or a bit flustered when things dont go your way. And when youre out there giving life your best shot daily, you are going to have more than a few things go awry on occasion. OK, probably way more than a few. Its just a part of life.
The manner in which you respond to these trying times speaks volumes about you and the direction youre headed. If you constantly let these sticky situations make you bitter about life and living in general, the only person youre hurting is yourself.
"It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top."
By allowing lifes ordeals, big and small alike, to knock you off balance and out of whack, you miss out on the best life has to offer. On the other hand, if you view these difficulties as opportunities to get BETTER, theres no telling how much better your life can get.
Look, its one thing to get knocked off kilter; quite another to stay there. Your ability to bounce back when you get bounced around will determine whether you live a getting bitter or getting better lifestyle.
"Don't find fault, find a remedy."
Sometimes life offers up some pretty bitter pills to swallow. Like it or not, all of us have to face tough spots and tricky situations. Getting mad or flying off the handle when things don't go our way may vent a little steam, but will all this ranting and raving get us where we want to go? Hardly.
I urge you to not view every obstacle, hurdle and barrier placed in your path as lifes bitter pills but as lifes better pills instead. It may not be easy initially, but over time and with some practice and patience you can change your viewpoint and start changing your life in the process forging a happier life full of energy, enthusaism and excitement.
"Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better."
The next time you start feeling yourself getting a bit bitter, a little hot under the collar, why not sweeten the moment by looking for the good and making the best of the temporarily unpleasant situation? Think positive, stay positive and find a way to get the positive momentum flowing again.
Youll discover that getting better beats the heck out of getting bitter and makes you feel a whole lot better as well. And building a better you is the first step towards building a better world.
The Bottom Line: When you vow to get better youll get better than ever.
