It's All How We See It

What one sees depends on how one sees.
— Søren Kierkegaard

When it comes to growth, attitude will either make you or break you. A good attitude acts like a fertilizer and invigorates and accelerates your development. A bad attitude acts like a poison and will spoil any chance of growth. 

The good news is we can choose to have a good attitude, even in a bad situation. I say make it a habit. Discipline yourself to remain optimistic even when it’s hard. Always see the glass as half full, not half empty.     

Kierkegaard’s quote reminded of this maxim from Abraham Lincoln.

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
— Abraham Lincoln

It’s all how we see it.
