They happen for us.
When things happen to us, we become the victim, and when things happen for us, we are in charge and it is up to us, what we do with it, or what we do about it.
It’s all about perception.
Whatever comes our way, comes our way, and it is up to us to view it positively or negatively and our actions will follow our perception.
So whatever we face – we need to perceive it as an opportunity…an opportunity to make us stronger, smarter, or more empowered and better able to deal with the same things when it come around again.
Otherwise, things can break us down and take it’s toll…when all we had to do is change our perception.
