We have a choice in every situation that we encounter.
In adversity, do you see the end of the road that you wanted to go down, or do you see an opportunity to try something new?
I hope you will keep trying new things.
Because most things eventually give way to a persistent attack.
It’s our preconceptions that are the problem. They tell us that things should or need to be a certain way, so when they’re not, we naturally assume that we are at a disadvantage or that we’d be wasting our time to pursue an alternate course. When really, it’s all fair game, and every situation is an opportunity for us to act.
