“Sometimes in tragedy we find our life’s purpose. The eye sheds a tear to find its focus.”
– Robert Brault
My mission this year has been to keep a positive attitude 24/7/365. Sometimes, that means finding the good in a “bad” situation. It’s been challenging at times, and I don’t always succeed, at least not right away.
Those are the times that I look back and see how things that I thought were awful in the past turned out to be a blessing or a stepping stone to a better place; to something that I wanted – often to something I wished for.
I’ve said this so many times that it could be an alternative name to my blog –
There is something good in everything.
Aristotle believed that this ability to grow into one’s highest potential is stored within each of us. He referred to it as “entelechy.” Entelechy is a vital force that motivates and guides one toward their highest self-fulfillment.
So, even the “bad” stuff moves us towards our desires –
There’s good stuff in the bad stuff.
The bad stuff forces us to do something, to get out of our comfort zone and “fix” things, to change something for the better. Ultimately, the “bad” stuff forces us to look within and find our best selves.
So, when something seemingly bad happens, instead of getting upset, take a few minutes to see what good could possibly come out of it, or be hidden in it. When you focus on the good, you attract more good into your life. Are you ready to start looking for the good in everything?
