Whatever the situation

Difficult people can be valuable teachers. Difficult situations can build strong and highly useful skills.

Challenges provide outstanding opportunities to be your best, and to get even better. Disappointments can help you more fully appreciate the good things you have.

Look for the positive possibilities in whatever happens. Those positive possibilities are most certainly there.

Instead of resenting where you are, or who you must deal with, or what you must do, find something positive. Find a way to grow, to learn, to appreciate, to become stronger and more highly skilled.

Instead of wishing for an easy situation, see and make the most of the value in whatever the situation may be. Always remember that life’s fulfillment is not handed to you, but is created by you out of the reality that comes your way.

Embrace that reality, in all its many flavors. Find goodness and value in whatever may come, and you’ll never have to worry about what may or may not happen next.

— Ralph Marston
