From article: Stuck? You May Have Eyes Wide Shut Syndrome, By Valery Satterwhite
“I’ve been told that I’m incompetent, socially retarded, maladjusted. I still know that I couldn’t function in reality. Los Angeles is a good place for me.” – Diablo Cody, Writer, “Juno”
What seems painful, limiting or defeating can become a source of strength and inspiration if viewed from a different perspective.
You can focus upon and give energy to all that is not working for you or you can choose to see what is viable for yourself and others.
Do you turn your attention to all the failures and rejection in your life and in the lives of others who are after similar goals?
Or do you actively seek shining examples of what is and can be done to deliver the ultimate experience you are working so hard to achieve.
Simply put, you can become a victim of your circumstance or the hero of your opportunity.
