The Secret the smartest people in the world know...
Adam Rifkin stashed this in #greatness
So much of life is about finding the lemonade in the bag of lemons that you are handed.
Success starts with finding serendipity. Spotting the moments of peace and beauty that brighten the otherwise stressful landscape of busy days and chaotic attempts at business mastery.
Ironically, these moments of tranquility are all around us. Waiting to be noticed. Waiting to inspire greatness. And if you’re looking for them, you’ll find them.
It is easy (and natural) to feel broken and depressed by the stress of daily conquest.
Unless you take time to marvel at what is extraordinary, you’ll find yourself buried in the mundane and ordinary.
That’s what the smartest people in the world know. How to find beauty and distraction amidst stress and complexity.
What’s the lesson? The better you are at appreciating the beauty around you, the better decisions you will make. The more options you will see. The smarter you will be.
It is when you see the beauty in your situation that you are best prepared to experience breakthrough.
So perhaps the question isn’t: “What’s wrong with this situation?” Perhaps the better question is: “What’s beautiful with this bad situation?”
I love this stash! It's my new daily mantra... "Unless you take time to marvel at what is extraordinary, you’ll find yourself buried in the mundane and ordinary." Always take the time to find what beautiful majesty is held by even the worst of tragedies...
