Point of view

Will you end up achieving what you set out to achieve? It all depends on your point of view.

You can view fear as a reason to stop, and allow that fear to hold you back. Or you can see fear as a preparation for moving ahead, learn from what it has to teach, and go confidently forward.

You can view each challenge as an excuse for failure, and fill your life with regrets. Or you can see each challenge as a pathway to success, and fill your life with achievement.

You can look for who is to blame when things go wrong, and fill your thoughts with resentment. Or you can look for ways to make things right, and fill your moments with positive, effective action.

Success, achievement, happiness and fulfillment all depend not so much on what’s there, but rather on how you choose to view it and use it. You can choose to see the world in a way that will defeat you, or you can view it in a way that will empower you.

What’s your point of view? See the positive side of each situation, and you’ll find yourself living on the positive side of life.
