One thing that I’ve learned in life, is don’t be upset when things don’t go your way. People have the ability to control their own destiny… but if things don’t work out, find the silver lining. I’ve never had an instance where I was unable to find a silver lining. Everything in my life has turned me to something great that has helped shape my life in a way I wouldn’t want any different. Everything truly has happened for a reason.
No matter if it’s death, a missed goal, a failed attempt at something, or a tripped hurdle… there’s always something positive that comes from it. The bigger the situation, the bigger the silver lining is that can have the ability to change your life in a positive manner. I’ve met people I never would have from failures or wrong turns. I’ve become stronger from big losses. I’ve had things work out in the favor of loved ones from tragic events.
Everything happens for a reason is not only a belief that helps an entrepreneur mentally… but a belief that will truly lead to good things if you are willing to find them.
