It’s all about how you react to what happens to you
“It’s not about what happens to you, it’s about how you react to what happens to you.” If there is a saying that has been very helpful to me in 2019 this is it.
Usually at the beginning of each year we set goals, set goals and make plans to achieve those goals. But often in the first quarter of the year we realize that not everything goes as planned. Sometimes things go much better than we expect and sometimes even worse.
When things go better than we planned we automatically react positively, we are more motivated to do more and better. But how do we react when things go wrong? The right thing would be not to be shaken, not to be demotivated, readjust the plans and move on. But the truth is that we don’t always react that way. There are other times when things don’t work out we are totally devastated. We lose hope and in the worst case scenario we even think of giving up what we wanted to do.
I am a very optimistic person by nature, something very serious needs to happen to make me lose hope. Sometimes I get down when things go wrong, but one way or another I can create a positive scenario in my mind that gives me enough positive energy to think of other alternatives. However, this does not mean that I’m immune to frustrations that occur to me when things don’t go as planned. Although 2019 started well, after the first quarter it seemed that everything I had planned was not going well. Before I knew it, I was in a state of complete frustration. After waking up I decided to listen to a motivational video on YouTube. And the first video that came to me as an option, spoke exactly of this saying “it’s not about what happens to you but about how you react to what happens to you”. It was not new to me. Here on the blog I have dealt with different issues related to this, but sometimes we focus so much on the negative things that happen to us that we forget to react properly to get around these situations.
This saying is full meaning is not thought in vain. Indeed, the quality of our lives is largely determined by how we respond to things that happen to us that we have no control over. You may not have been able to prevent your business from going bankrupt, for example, but how you will get around this will determine whether you will be a successful entrepreneur or not. So by 2020 we can take this saying into account for whatever happens to us.
My look was made up of this beautiful Grass-field sweater with this motherland design. I combined it with my vintage-style skirt that I have for quite sometime and these super fashionable boots.
I hope you enjoyed the post and do not forget to dream and always fight for the realization of your dreams.
