“The Difference Between a Stumbling Block and a Stepping Stone is How You Use Them.” — Unknown

We all have events and situations every day, and I believe that each one of these occurrences can be either bad or good for us. You will have the opportunity presented regularly to interpret and react to many different people and situations. What will guarantee that those opportunities are stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks?It comes down to a few choices we make with each event. Will you be an optimist or pessimist in regard to this person or situation? Will you work to make this productive or destructive? Will you do what is right or what is wrong for you? These are all choices we make that will directly affect whether we move forward or move backward.

Is there a situation you are facing right now that could go either way? Then you have a choice. Choose to be an optimist. Choose to make it productive. Choose to do what is right for you.

When you make these choices, you will find a stepping-stone to fulfillment, rather than a stumbling block to your future.

    Looking back there have been times when things I thought were horrible turned out to be the best thing that had ever happened to me. It is a matter of perception. It’s just sometimes hard to recognise this when you are going through life
