“Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.”
– Aldous Huxley
I have worked hard at steering clear of thinking or saying things like, “he did this to me” or “they did that to me”, the truth is people do what they do for themselves. They act out of their own stuff and not mine. They do not do things to me, they do things for themselves that may have an effect on me but they do not do them to me!
My friend and mentor Jack says, “victims are victimized”. Certainly we can all make a case that we have been victimized but the point is when we live in the pain and not the solution we are stuck as victims. Life is too good to get stuck, we are here for a flicker, we need to live with passion, vigor and purpose. Don’t allow set-backs to hold you back, view them for what they really are, a set-up for a come-back!
Go, Go, Go…
