“Your destiny is not determined by……

“Your destiny is not determined by external circumstances but by how you respond to them.”
Rev. Michael Beckwith

I was always fascinated as a child why it was that two people could face the same set of circumstances yet react so differently to them, where one sees it as a blessing and the other sees it as a curse.

When most kids were out playing, a lot of my childhood was spent lying in hospital beds, yet far from looking upon the circumstances I faced as tragic, I managed to find the good in the situation which led me down a long path to where I find myself today, publishing inspirational and motivational writing to readers in over 60 countries, none of which would have happened had I not sought out the good and chosen instead to use it as an excuse for a lifelong pity party.

We can’t always control what’s going to come our way and what circumstances we’ll face, but we can control how we respond to them and whether we choose to see it as a blessing capable of taking us onward and upward, or whether we see it as a curse and let it forever steel our energy, passion and desire to seek out and live the life you were born to live.

Ask yourself today, ‘How do I respond to challenges and setbacks in my own life, do I seek out the good and see it as a blessing, or do I have a habit of focussing on the negative?’

Have an Outstanding Day!
