Three Choices…

“When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.” Author Unknown

The reality of bad things happening is inevitable. No one is immune from the negative, discouraging, or “bad” that occurs, even if we simply chalk-it-up to perspective.

However, regardless of one’s perspective, the choice of what is done when these events happen is what makes the difference in our lives.

If difficulties define us, we tend to only focus on the drudgery of life and the poor hand we have been dealt, thus “woe is me.”

If difficulties destroy us, then life becomes little more than existence. Nothing is worth talking about or doing.

If difficulties strengthen us, we are better prepared to help others who face the same challenges and we are better equipped for the next difficulty that may come our way.

We should not seek difficulties, but if they come, let us use them as an opportunity to better prepare ourselves to lead.
