Life is 10% what happens to you, it is 90% how you react to it - Charles Swindall

Value of life is not fully discovered unless one is confronted with bumps in life. It is but natural to enjoy the pleasures of success and happiness, celebrate with a sense of satisfaction and joy. Why? Because, happiness, success is something that is liked by all naturally.

On the other hand, if one is confronted with a hiccup in life, it pulls the person down. Makes anyone drag oneself along the way. Why? Because sorrow, sadness is something one does not look forward to in life.

Life is a rollercoaster that one rides each day. Just as one elevates oneself to the moon and enjoys the great moments in life, one needs to be able to evaluate and face life when confronted with hiccups. The true individual can only be evaluated depending on how one stands up for oneself and confronts the situation.

It is incorrect to assume that good things rarely touch your feet. It is unfair to blame GOD for all the misgivings that one faces in life. It is also incorrect to believe that you are one of those unfortunate who are always confronted with sorrows.

Look closely, every individual one comes across will have some kind of issues in life ranging from personal to professional life. It is easy to live a life complaining about what one did not get or one did not accomplish. It is an acheivement if one takes the negative in oneself's stride just as one would take the positive. It is the ATTITUDE that dictates this character of metal.

Past cannot be changed, but one should not ruin the future by worrying about it in the present. Worrying about what happened in the past or what could confront one in the future serves no purpose. One has to have a positive outlook and think what needs to be done to carve a better brighter future. Positive Attitude alone can take an individual miles. Rather than complain, pick up on the mistakes, one has to learn lessons and face life with an unparalled ATTITUDE.

So very true...We all know this, understand this completely, but still don't follow it all the time...Striving hard to follow but still not cent percent...And in the search for happiness/success, we forget that the search for self-satisfaction is more important...Attitude is indeed all that matters...Other than that, I don't mind and you don't matter :)

Remembered another apt saying...
We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.
- Helen Keller
