"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity."
- Gilda Radner, was an American comedienne and actress, best known for her five years as part of the original cast of the NBC comedy series Saturday Night Live, for which she won an Emmy Award.
"Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven't half the strength you think they have."
- Norman Vincent Peale, was a Protestant preacher and author (most notably of The Power of Positive Thinking) and a progenitor of the theory of "positive thinking".
"If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us."
- Nena O'Neil
Blocks, struggles and set backs are not bad. No way. Keep the perspective that everything is working out FOR your Highest good. Not getting what you want can be a huge blessing. Do not judge a situation as bad because it's not going the way "you" want it to.
Instead, detach and see the bigger picture that is unfolding. Know that you are being guided by invisible hands to an outcome that is greater than you could imagine right now.
As they say, set backs are SET UPs for something better. Instead of offering resistance to the set backs and blocks of your life accept them as road signs pointing to go in another direction.
If you take this point of view your life will begin to flow with ease and things will start to work out in better and better ways.
See the big picture.
I see set backs as gifts.
I happen to life, life does not happen to me.
Things continue to work out better and better for me as I let go of needing to be right.
