How to deal with hard times

In this video I talk about my favourite quote “you never know what worse luck your bad luck saves you from” Cormac McCarthy. More importantly, I talk about how the quote helps me when dealing with hard times and especially when things go wrong. When things do go wrong as they inevitably do eventually we often see the alternative as some kind of utopia a life that turned out substantially better that we are now missing out on.

So if you’d like to know how to deal with hard times you have to stay aware of how you replay the alternate stories in your head.

      Thank you, it is surprising how powerful it is when we become aware of how much a false story negatively impacts our future.

      My pleasure 🙂

    Thank you for sharing. I have been “re-writing” my past by changing my perspective of the events. Doing this is changing my life and setting my journey on a new path. I love it when I find others who are doing the same thing. Sending hugs and wishing you a wonderful day!
