“People are always blaming circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get ahead in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” – George Bernard Shaw
Sometimes when we experience difficulty we look for others to blame. It’s the economy, our boss won’t let us shine, our family sucks, whatever. While those things very well may be true, it’s up to us to rise above it.
While you can’t control things outside of yourself, you can control how you respond to life’s challenges and how you allow them to make you feel. Are you going to be a victim of your circumstances, or will you grab hold of your life and make it happen? You decide.
