Appreciation - the Key to Getting More
How do you find appreciation when things are not going so well? If you look closely enough at the way that rocky path always leads to something better, it's not so difficult to anticipate that the rough times will blossom into a better you and an unexpected future that could not have come about if it were not for your struggles.
Remember when your best friend betrayed you? And then, it seemed like you had friends everywhere available to support you. Would you have even known of these gems if you hadn't experienced betrayal?
Or when you lost out on that beautiful home you bid on only to find yourself led to the absolutely perfect home that you would have missed if the first one had been available.
And on and on and on. Look to the future potential outcome of your struggles today and you will be able to appreciate more than just the good times. You will be able to appreciate that everything you get in life is designed to make you a better you.
Remember: it is not what you experience in life that matters; it is how you deal with your experiences in life that matters.
