I love quotes.
A good one liner can awaken you, entertain you, educate you, and more.
One of my recent favorites was written centuries ago.
Seneca (the ancient Stoic who who wrote letters and essays to help us today) left us this juicy tidbit –
“It’s all in your head. You have the power to make things seem hard or easy or even amusing. The choice is yours.”
At first glance you may not grasp the power in his statement.
It’s a reminder that you have a choice about how you see your life.
Whatever you are going through right now can be seen in at least three different ways.
Most of us let the default “It’s hard” run us.
We don’t feel very inspired or empowered with that view.
But what if you changed it to “It’s easy”?
We can now move to a clearer place, see our options, and maybe even enjoy the process.
And what about — dare I say it – “It’s amusing”?
What you are going through can be amusing?
Seneca didn’t say it WAS amusing, he said you could make it SEEM amusing.
Again, it’s all about how you choose your perception.
