Much Ado About Positive Thinking
Do you often point to outside factors when things don't work out, or do you look inward, proactively seeking to make sense of things and how to best try again next time? It is tempting (and easy) to blame someone or something else when you fall short of a mark you've set for yourself. The difference between stagnation and success comes from how you frame it. When we recognize that some of our hardest times pave the way for even sweeter success, great things start to happen. While positive thinking may not in and of itself yield a wonderful life; it is a tool needed to create it. Approaching obstacles as things to figure out rather than unbeatable enemies allows you to take control.
