We have a challenge for you.
Our natural tendency is to think that things happen to us. But what would it mean if everything happened for us? Both the good and the bad.
What if, you were able to rewire your brain to think about all of the things that are happening around you to be happening for you.
Take this example: You’re driving to work and a car pulls out in front of you. You slam on the brakes and barely miss rear-ending the trouble-making driver. Your first reaction is to get so angry. You want to scream at them and tell them to go somewhere hot.
But, what if you changed your viewpoint. What if this happened for you, not to you?
Instead of being upset about almost getting in a crash, be thankful you didn’t get into a crash.
Instead of thinking about how bad of a driver that person is, think about what good could come out of it. What if this driver delayed your arrival by ten seconds and caused you to avoid an even greater car wreck? Or, it caused you to be more mindful of your own driving.
Who knows what awesome chain of events this set off in your favor!
Gratitude is a superpower.
If you believe it happened for you, good things will come out of it.
Give it a try and let us know how it works out.
