It’s not about circumstances

It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.

Believe in yourself

It is all about the reality-distortion field!

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.

Bruce Lee Week #6: Create your world

To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities.

Bruce Lee

There are a lot of things that can not be controlled. Life will put you in situations that you do not like at all. But although you can not control those situations, you can control your reactions to them.

How you react to situations and given circumstances defines what you can make out of them. You can turn a bad situation into a good opportunity. Having a flat tire? Great, you will learn how to change a tire! Your usual bus route is cancelled due to whatever reason? Awesome, time to learn a new route.

Okay, those examples are pretty mundane, but you get the point. It is about you feel and react towards what life throws at you that makes you happy or not. It is very important to realise that there is a lot out of your control and to just let it go. That’s just how it is, so don’t worry and make the best out of it.

Also, don’t wait for right moments all the time. Often, there is no right time. The right time is an imaginary moment you created in order to prolong decisions and bold actions. Create the right moment by acting!

Create your world

Who is responsible?

Who is responsible for your misery/luck? Fate? Well maybe fate or some greater power controlls circumstances but you control everything else!

I don’t control life but I control how I react to it.

Macklemore

It is very important to understand that your mental state defines wether you are in a happy or in a sad place.

Be happy, consciously decide to be happy!

Adapt and enjoy

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.

Yeah, winter sucks, it’s cold and wet.

Ugh, it’s so warm today, I don’t want to do anything, summer can be really stressfull.

I don’t know what to wear, it’s not cold, not warm, curse you spring and fall!

Well it is not always about what you don’t have and what you wish for. Mostly you have the best times if you just accept the current situation and enjoy it.

Adapt to whatever life gives you and enjoy the hell out of it. Who can stop you? That’s right, because you decided to have fun without depending on outer circumstances, no one can take you that. Enjoy your fun 🙂
