Life is not constantly fair - positive-attitude


I once heard the story of a grown bear that lived in a cage and traveled with a show ever since he was a small cub. The bear spent everyday of his life pacing back and forth in his cage while countless audience looked on. When the bear's keepers were not looking some of the audience would poke the bear with sharp brushwood or would throw pieces of food packed with busted glass into the cage. When the great bear would eat what he accepted wisdom was a astonishing treat, the cracked glass would cut the exclusive of his throat and stomach.

One day a wealthy animal-lover visited the festival and saw the detrimental acts committed aligned with the bear. For the reason that he felt great compassion for animals he approached the extravaganza about purchasing the bear. He explained that he would take the bear and place him in a large open area. In this area the bear would have cool pools of water to play in and lush green fields to run. The show decided to sell the bear to the man and set up a approach date.

When the day here for the bear to be delivered all was anxious to see what would come to pass when the door of the cage was opened for the first time. To everyone's amazement, when the cage was opened, the bear did what he spent every day of his life doing. He cleanly paced back and forth the extent of the cage. The bear didn't even seem to care that the cage door was open. Finally, the bear's keepers got the bear exterior the cage and rolled it away. What they saw next shocked everyone.

The bear looked about at his new delightful home. He looked at the cool pools of water and the lush green pastures. Then to everyone's astonish and disappointment, the bear began his pacing. Back and forth he would go - as in an imaginary cage. In due course he had to be put to sleep since he could not act in his exquisite new home.

I hope and pray that you are not existing a life like the bear described above. I heard a quote a moment ago that went a little like this, "Don't let your past dictate who you are, but do let it authority who you become. " It is a well-known fact: Life is not constantly fair. Therefore, I am of the estimation that when life turns up the heat what you F. O. C. U. S. on helps you make it because of the day a winner. My good friend, Robert Mallon, explains it this way, "The longer we look at God the lesser our obstacles become. The longer we look at the obstacles the less important God becomes. The ask is whether we want a BIG God or a big enemy. It is just a affair of perspective. "

When life becomes unfair what do you focus on? The ethics below are basic, but will distinctly help you when you are struggling to keep a categorical outlook.

F - Fun. Set physically a goal to have fun every day. Make it intentional. Put it on your calendar. Do doesn't matter what it takes - just have fun.

O - Organized. When life becomes unfair we can begin to let equipment pile up. Belongings like emails and phone calls to reply to, deadlines at work, laundry, yard work, etc. In other words, a in a mess life will bring about a chaotic mind. Or is that the other way around? Also way, as much as possible, keep your day-to-day behavior as methodical as possible.

C - Care for others. One of the best ways to disregard how much you are hurting is to focus on how you can help others. In receipt of your eyes off yourself, and on to how you can help others, will boost your categorical outlook on life.

U - You. When you are going by means of tough times it is very critical to keep a good diet, exercises routine, and sleep habits. This will help keep your mind clear and your energy up. Remember, God loves you and He does not make junk.

S - Successes. Not only ought to you plan to have fun everyday, but also you ought to plan to succeed. You might have to tell manually to be on the beware for successes in your day, but when you have one, (even a diminutive one) celebrate. A current rollerblading trip was an illustration of this in my life. My goal was to "blade" about this paved avenue (up and down, left and right) not including falling. I looked like an elephant on skates, but when I made it to the be over line I was ecstatic! I accomplished my goal and lived to tell about it.

Life is not continually fair. Deaths, sickness, career changes, and struggles are going to occur. Just bear in mind to keep your focus and to hold tight to the hand of God. When times are tough, He will carry you to the end.
