Helen Keller said, “worse than not being able to see is not having a vision. Keep your dreams in front of you and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it.”
All successful endeavors are built by someone with a vision. They face discouragement and set backs just like anyone else but they don’t let them stop them from accomplishing their goals. What some see as obstacles and handicaps, others see as an opportunity!
They say that a positive attitude doesn’t work every time. That is true, but a negative attitude does work every time! Here is a great story of Bethany Hamilton, the young surfer who had her arm bit off by a shark. She could have easily chose a negative attitude. We can’t always control our circumstances in life but we can chose our attitude toward them. We can’t control what other people say, think, or do to us. We should not let others dictate how are day goes. The challenge is to look at each obstacle as an opportunity to learn and grow. Each dark moment as an opportunity to shine. Look for the good in every day. You just might find it! Also check out Bethany’s story in the video vault section of this site.
