Positive Guideline #40

Frame every so-called disaster with these words “In 5 years, will this matter?”

Have you ever felt helpless in a situation, and perhaps as though you could not overcome it no matter what you did? Before you get anxious and worry yourself, think: “is this worth getting all worked up over? In 5 years, will this even matter?” By asking yourself these questions, you are able to see the bigger picture and realize that it may just be a small bump in the road that you will look back on and laugh about. Keep strong and stay positive, because seldom are things permanent. Remember, this too shall pass.
