It didn't happen to you

We all experience situations that leave us at our wit's end.

 If you haven't, life has a way of humbling you from time to time. Look forward to it. I'm not trying to scare you here, this is just part of the process. The process of your life's plan unfolding. The process of you becoming better. The process of you overcoming.

Thing is, troubles and circumstances you experience are part of your plan. These situations are in place to create in you a spirit of perseverance and unshakable faith. We aren't certain of what our plans contain, but we can be certain that our life's plan will be prosperous. If you carry that thought process a little farther, every situation is helping you get closer to prospering. One of my favorite authors wrote "In every adversity, there's a seed of equal or greater benefit." Every circumstance, good or bad, is there for you to benefit from. 

In adversity, it's easy to get overwhelmed with emotion and temporary defeat. It's easy to ask "why me?" instead of "why not me?" It easy to give an excuse instead of continuing to pursue your passion. It's easy to stay down if you've fallen. There is an easy way out, but you don't take the easy way out. You scratch and claw until you've accomplished what you set out for. 

It's not over until you win. 

In all things give thanks. 

It didn't happen to you, it happened for you..

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
