“Of course there is no formula for success except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.”
Part of the real beauty of life is that it is unpredictable. Nothing is permanent, everything changes; and of course, a lot of things can happen that will transform who we are and have an impact on our life. The problem is that we need to cultivate the ability to truly accept whatever comes and embrace it.
When we resist reality, we are imprisoned by it. The secret to happiness and peace is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you think it should be, and making the best of it.
Over time you will find that life is not necessarily any easier or harder than you thought it was going to be; it is just that the easy and the hard are not exactly the way you had anticipated, and do not always occur when you expect them to. This is not a bad thing; it makes life interesting.
We need to develop the habit of looking at whatever happens through a positive mindset, instead of a negative and defeatist one. With a positive attitude you will almost always be pleasantly surprised.
Acceptance is a choice – a hard one most definitely, but in the end, it is a choice that only we can make at any given situation of our lives.
Choose not to judge what happens to you. Instead believe that everything happens for a reason, to learn and to develop from it.
“What you resist, persists.”
