People of accomplishment rarely sit back and let things happen to them. They go out and happen to things.

Difficult circumstances

Don’t let your situation determine how you are. Let yourself decide and determine how the situation is.

Your attitude is never forced upon you by outside circumstances. On the contrary, your attitude is based on the way you choose to respond to whatever may come your way.

You can have a great day by choosing to be the person who will have a great day. You can live this day based on a strong, solid inner intention that never wavers.

What you encounter is important. Yet what’s much more important and influential is the way you encounter it.

It’s easy to blame difficult circumstances for a difficult day. It’s far better to live each day based not on what it brings, but rather on the positive value you choose to give it.

Instead of complaining or bragging about the difficulties, transcend them and live beyond them. Use the power you surely have, to make the best of even the most difficult circumstances.
