What you allow

If you allow anything to hold you back it will hold you back. Whatever you allow to push you forward will push you forward.

There are many factors, circumstances and influences flowing through your life. Whether each one is a liability or an asset is to a large degree up to you.

Great disappointments and tragedies can arise out of seemingly perfect situations. And magnificent achievements can come from desperate, seemingly hopeless conditions, based on what you allow to get to you.

What matters most is not usually the nature of your situation. What makes a crucial difference is what you take from it and what you do with it.

Even in places and pursuits where others may have failed, you have the opportunity to succeed. Even those factors that may have held others back can be your motivation to move forward.

Many things may seem inevitable, and yet most things are really not. No matter what life may send your way, look for how you can use it in a positive, productive and valuable manner.
