Searching for is what occurs when you select to believe you have control over some aspects of your life.
Looking down is what occurs when you believe you’re a victim of life and situation.
Looking up is a method to endure and grow through tough times; it requires guts, optimism, belief, and responsibility.
Looking down is a way to “create” even worse circumstances and turn the impression of bad luck into a reality. It feeds upon negativeness, excuses, doubt, and shock.
The method you look will affect where you go.
Although we do not have much control over lots of things in life, focusing on what we do control– like looking up– can entirely alter the direction of your life.
When you search for, the good becomes better, the bad ends up being good, and the desperate becomes enthusiastic.
You can’t put a worth or measure the impact of point of view and mindset; but in the game of life, it is your most vital possession.
