All Is Going Well
« on: December 14, 2014, 01:02:08 PM »

Find wisdom in this thought about all is going well when in fact all may not be going that great.   

The wisdom from George S. Patton contain thoughts to inspire
"I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but how
high he bounces when he hits bottom."

The true test in life does not occur when all is going well. The true test takes place when we are faced with challenges. Some people have a positive attitude towards life only when all is well. However, when the going gets tough, their attitude changes instantly, and they become very negative or are consumed with self pity.

There are many examples of people who have hit bottom. Christopher Reeve is an example of someone who had faced challenges. He was a person who was very successful and active, however, he had a riding accident that left him paralyzed. He could have felt sorry for himself. Instead, since the accident he has raised money for research on paralysis, directed a film, and has written his autobiography Still Me.

I recently talked with someone who was having difficulties; part of the problem was they were sitting around just feeling sorry for themselves. My advice to them was "do something productive" rather than sit and think!

Your problems seem larger when all you do is sit around and think about them. When you are active and doing something productive you will find that your mind is no longer focusing on your issues and in fact you may find yourself feeling better.

Be conscious of your attitude. Work extra hard at keeping your attitude positive in all kinds of weather, through all the challenges of life. I know this is very easy to say and at times, can be difficult to put into practice. But you almost have to force your mind to stay focused on the positive things in your life.

I will leave you with wisdom from Norman Vincent Peale,
"Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude towards it,
for that determines our success or our failure."
