The Way Things Are (are not how they have to be)

“That’s just the way things are … That’s just the way things have always been.”

I’ve always had a strong dislike to those statements. Things DO NOT always have to be the way they are or have been. Some things can change. We have the power to change them—if willing.

True, we can’t change everything. A rock is a rock. You can’t turn an ant into elephant. But you can change things about yourself then influence outcomes around you for the better.

Winners learn to go the extra mile and give a high level of effort. Successful people are willing to sacrifice and work hard. People with a positive attitude will overcome life’s obstacles. They will say, “The way things are … are not how they have to be.”

Then they change them.
