The Better Choice (+)
I sometimes don’t understand why some people get the impression that positive people don’t sail through rough waters. I mean, come on. Just because someone is all happy and sunny doesn’t mean that no storms have lurked behind those smiles. We all have our own circumstances and demons to conquer; the hard slaps of life exempt no one, whether you're rich or poor.
The great thing about challenges is that, while they're sometimes heartbreaking or discouraging, they're very formative, so it’s not always a bad thing. As Napoleon Hill once said, "every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent advantage".
Of course, having a positive mindset is always of great help during hard times. It's always the better choice.
Because being positive keeps us sane. It helps us think clearly. It brings us closer to the right people and energy so that we are able to withstand the rest of the challenges along the way. I’m sure you know how harsh and cruel the world can be… if you don’t make the conscious decision to stay calm and remain positive, the world will slowly rob you of your positive spirit, and you wouldn’t want that.
“You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.”
Anytime you find it difficult to go through something, just remember that hardships don't last forever. Keep your head up and your spirits high; you're going to make it! Just stick with the better choice.
