 When something happens to us, our first reaction usually is to ask, “Why me?”

Why did that guy just cut me off? Why did I miss the meeting? Why is it so busy here?

We wonder why things happen to us. A better question to ask is, “What does it mean to me?”

What are your thoughts, beliefs, and feelings about getting cut off or missing a meeting?

If things in your life are chaotic and crazy, how reflective is that of your mental state?

Take time to examine your thoughts when you can find some quiet space.

This is an excerpt from our book, You Can Choose.
