“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves” – Viktor Frankl

  • The only option left is for us to adapt.
  • Redirecting energy used to try and change something out of our control and focus our own attitudes, perspectives and behaviors.
  • Adversity can be transformational because it requires accepting what we cannot change and becoming more skilled at changing the way we deal with it.

Sometimes trying to turn ourselves inside out to deal with a difficulty is not as good as developing tools to become stronger.
