“Hardship, in forcing us to exercise greater patience and forbearance in daily life, actually makes us stronger and more robust. From the daily experience of hardship comes a greater capacity to accept difficulties without losing our sense of inner calm. Of course, I do not advocate seeking out hardship as a way of life, but merely wish to suggest that, if you relate to it constructively, it can bring greater inner strength and fortitude.” Dalai Lama
Life brings pain and discomfort and no one can escape it. By not resisting it you transcend it. See your wisest and greatest outcomes. Turn your disadvantages into advantages.
The key is not necessarily doing something different, but being different. Allow life to be the way it is, don’t resist it or try to change it. Use the situation to empower yourself and take your best action at the most appropriate time.
Find ways to discover advantages in your disadvantages. Be creative and curious…..like a child. There are opportunities within every problem. Turn frustration into fascination.
Very important – Complaining does not help you, it wastes your vital energy and resources and attracts more negativity. Just let go and allow what is to be the way it is. Respond instead of reacting. Observe without judgment and discover what is happening and what is best for you and others now. Then take the appropriate action.
You can grow, transform and be successful from exactly where you are now. Use whatever challenges you have as opportunities for growth and development. The greater the challenge, the greater the potential success or triumph! What an opportunity!
This moment is your point of greatest power. What is happening must happen so make the best out of it. Make the highest and best choices for you and the world. Worst case, turn lemons into lemonade. Best case. create miracles!

An enlightened perspective from Jeff Maziarek in “Spirituality Simplified”
“Remember that every cause you initiate leads to an effect. So, when you give from the heart, you set energy into motion that must in turn find its way back to you in some form. I say in some form, because there is no telling how or when the effect may show up.
For example, let’s say you donate a sum of money to a cause that has inspired you in some way; this does not necessarily mean that you will receive the same amount or more in return. The positive energy you extended may instead come back to you as a new business or career opportunity that appears seemingly out of nowhere, or it may manifest for you as improved or continued good health, or as a breakthrough in a troubled relationship, etc.
Now you might say that this is not always true, as there are many instances in which people give but do not seem to receive anything positive in return. In some cases this may appear to be an accurate appraisal. However, more often than not, if you were able to look deeper into the motivation behind the giving, you would probably discover that their intent wasn’t quite as pure as one may have originally thought.
Specifically, when the giving is done with the objective of receiving something in return, or because the person feels like they have no other choice but to give, then the underlying motivation behind it is rooted in scarcity. Since the Universe always knows what our real intentions are (i.e., our true feelings), it is not surprising then that people who give from this frame of mind do not receive anything in return.”
