Your current situation is merely a rung in your life’s ladder
Peace comes when you realize how you react to life’s situations is more important than the situation itself. Let’s talk a bit about situations, those circumstances or conditions that are related to a specific event and or actions.
Situations are temporary. How we react, comes from our disposition — a quality that is based on our outlook. And, a person’s inherent qualities, those pertaining to mind and character, need not be permanent.
Your disposition is your own unique characteristic attribute that will serve to guide you through life; how you interact, not only with others, but in situations.
Brian Tracy, an author and speaker has said “most people achieved their greatest success one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure.” How is this possible? Your outlook. According to Bob Fraser, one of my sagacious teachers, “success and accomplishment are available to regular people who choose to be disciplined, focused, persistent, committed, positive, enthusiastic and passionate about their goals.”
Make a promise to yourself that you will be mindful that your current situation is merely a rung in your life’s ladder. Here is what Bob taught me:
“To be so strong that nothing disturbs my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something in them to be envied. To look at the bright side of every event and make my optimism become reality. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own success.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements in the future. To wear a cheerful expression and give everyone I meet a genuine smile. To give so much time to my own improvement that I have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear – and too happy to allow the presence of troubles. To think well of myself and to let the world know this is how I feel, not with words but with what I actually do.
To live in the faith that the world is on my side as long as I am true to the best that is in me.” – Bob Fraser. On Sunday, July 17th, 2011, Bob Fraser passed away from complications relating to melanoma.
