Goal for the Day: Accept What You Can’t Change

Monday, May 9, 2011


Some days, it seems that nothing goes your way. Perhaps you’ve been struggling to reach a particular goal and it’s “so-close” but, for some reason, you just can’t reach it. Evaluate the situation. Often, there are many factors that are within your power to influence. You should always try all you can to get closer to your goal. However, sometimes circumstances just get in your way.

When that happens, what can you do? You can tear yourself apart with wishes and grief, but that’s not the most productive way to react. A better route is to keep trying, all the while accepting those circumstances that are out of your control. Instead of weighing yourself down with angst and panic, try to find solutions or alternatives and, if all else fails, the old adage really does hold true—“good things come to those who wait.”

No situation is ever truly ideal. But, it’s up to us to find the happiest path on even the rockiest of roads. ads
