How You Approach Life, Will Change Your Life

It’s amazing how much your life can change when you make the conscious decision to focus on the positives and not the negatives.

I’m currently going through a phase where I’m working on adding a new trading strategy to my arsenal & if you’ve ever done the same then you know that the process can be very time consuming & very frustrating as it features a lot of failures. When this occurs you have 2 choices on how to view things,

  1. You allow these failures to eat at your confidence & drag you down or
  2. You use that as learning experiences that motivate you to try the next thing.

I think it was Thomas Edison that said “I haven’t failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that didn’t work”

There’s no perfect path through life. Rather, life is a series of ups & downs. The key is to maximize your ups, survive your downs & learn from your experiences.

It’s amazing how your perception of life events will change when you look at them through a different lens. I challenge you to try & take the positive from each situation & see how it changes your current path in life.
