“God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.” – Serenity prayer
Life’s most important lessons seem to revolve around knowing the difference. This is where we can benefit from our ability to listen to our conscience—our innate sense of right and wrong.
Learning to accept these lessons as valuable “gifts” gives us the ability to dissect them and find ways to springboard ourselves to new levels of personal understanding and achievement.
How do you handle your life’s experiences? Do you place blame or accept responsibility? Do you dwell on the past — the pain of failed relationships, bad investment decisions, wrong paths taken? Or do you look towards the future — plan for a family, set financial goals, map your route to success?
Discover who you are. Think about who you want to be. Then dive in to the process of becoming that person. Surround yourself with like-minded people to enjoy the journey together.
Life happens. It’s how you handle your experiences that defines you. Are you proactive or reactive?
