So attitude goes a long way in shaping how we do in life.
For some people, the glass is half full, and for others it’s half empty–it’s of course, just how you look at it.
One colleague told me this week:
“Life is 10% what happens
90% how you react to it.”
I suppose we see that with so many people who have unbelievable daunting challenges in life, yet somehow they manage to put on a smile or give a thumbs up regardless, and just do what they need to do–they are troopers, survivors, and generally people of incredible character and caliber.
These are the heroes that we can look up to.
“When the going gets tough, the tough get going!”–and the going refers to doing what needs to get done, and not running away from your duty scared or not knowing what to do.
Need to be courageous, resourceful, loyal, and giving to others.
Stop the whining, the crying, the self pity, the questioning “why me”–what will any of that help?
Fight, fight, fight–that’s what we’re here for.
Until our last breath, we can still make a difference. 😉
