What are you a product of?
Stephen Covey who wrote The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People said, “I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.”
Viktor Frankl an Auschwitz survivor who wrote Man’s Search for Meaning said “Forces beyond your control can take away everything you possess except on thing, your freedom to choose how you will respond to the situation.”
Remember your circumstances don’t define you, you define you.
- retell our bad stories,
- focus on the negative
- hold other people responsible for our happiness
We are allowing other things to define us and that is not a happy way to go through the world… but the choice is yours... it’s always yours.
