You know the routine, it’s Monday. There places to go, people to see, and things to do. Done them so many times that they are routines or scripts you know well like an auto response. That is until . . . when things don’t go as expected.
On the morning of November 8, 2016, Hillary Clinton was on her way to become the next President of the United States. All the polls, news outlets, etc were predicting her winning back the White House. By the end of that day, things did not go so well for her.
Of course, it does not always have to be presidential proportion for things to go awry. Many factors can “ruin” our day. Traffic jam, bad earnings report, spilled coffee on dress . . . just to name a few. Let’s face it – things happen. To everybody.
How we deal with life’s curve balls matters. In fact our quality of life depends on it.
“Our life is the sum total of all the decisions we make every day. . .” ~ Myles Munroe.
Two food-for-thoughts: One, expect life to be uncertain. It would be boring otherwise. And two, there will always be things that are beyond our control. So maybe you’ll be prepared when things don’t go well.
How do you handle life’s problems? By anticipating, wait & see, or when it happens? Other thoughts?
