AYD - May 17,2012 - I Like the Wind on My Face

"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails."
- Bertha Calloway

Quite simply, there are some things in this life that we cannot control. Some conflict or resistance that is not going to be moved by our frustrations.  In those moments we must be strong enuf to recognize the truth for what it is.

In those moments, when you accept the things you cannot alter, you will notice you do have control over your perception of the situation, and these perceptions will help your emotions, and these will help you guide your actions for a more beneficial next step.

Accept that some things in life happen without our permission.
Be the one to influence your reaction before external forces have a chance to win you over.
Adjust your approach, and enjoy your handling of the moment.

Finally, inspire others with how well you manipulate the wind into helping you rather than draining your emotional energy.

"It is not what happens to you, it is how you respond to what happens."

Good Morning
