“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius
It is amazing how easy it is to fall into a victim mindset when life throws curves our way. Many people allow one difficult moment in their lives to dictate the rest of their life. They don’t see this as an opportunity to learn from the situation, but instead see it as a time to whine and complain about how unfair life is. Now it is not wrong to have feelings, after all we are all human. However, it becomes a problem when we allow that situation to alter our future, by not allowing us to move on with our lives. It is essential that we take control of our minds by carefully analyzing what we feed our mind and what we decide to act upon.
We do not have control of what happens around us, or what life throws our way, however we do have the control to decide whether we allow that situation to stop us or to launch us into the next level of our lives. So remember to fill your mind with positive things, and to always learn from every situation in order to live a life full of peace and joy in spite of what happens around us.
