Lao Tsu said if you correct your mind, rest of your life will fall in place.
And it’s so right. It is how we think that our world is. Stop and think, what kind of story are you telling yourself?
What kind of elements there are in the story? Anything can be viewed in a different light. Failures are valuable learning experiences, which help you grow as a person. They are the foundation where you lay your success brick by brick. Soon you will have a temple of success and then you see that each failure was necessary to get it done.
Present is your gift, the possibility to forge a future. Use your imagination to build your temple first by imagining the best possible life you can. What does it require?
Start working humbly from where you are, and you may get there. Present is more valuable than we know.
