\”Our attitude should be \”I\’m going to Trust… even when life doesn\’t make sense. 

\”Our attitude should be \”I\’m going to serve… whether I understand it or I don\’t understand it.\” 


Despite all the good in the world, we face tough things in life.


The worst thing you can do is ask why.

Listen to this wonderful thought leader:

\”When we face the unanswered questions of life, your attitude should be I\’m going to trust…. wherever I understand it or not. [Life\’s] not looking for whiners.  [Life\’s] looking for warriors.  So [if I don\’t understand ] I\’m going to put it into my \’I don\’t understand file\’ and move on.\”[1]

You might not have gotten that deal or received a no from your marriage proposal.  Maybe you got turned down from the 10th school, 11th job interview, 12th apartment application, turned down from the 13th grant, from the 14th patent, the 15th venture capital pitch.

YOU may be saying,\”What am I to do!\’

And frustration, dismay, hurt builds…

Yet we have to stop that \”internal movie\” of dismay.  Stop playing over disbelief, frustration.  Create a new film.

This film trusts the process.  This film trusts Life.  This movie unrolls a new door, a new pathway of hope, of opportunity.
Trust and move forward.  None ever says you get to know all the answers.  But we do know one answer we can trust:  \”I\’m going to be my best today, and expect the best today.\”
Life may be that simple.
