Count your blessings. Gratitude is the fuel of resiliency. Train your mind to think of at least one thing for which you are thankful everyday. It is often easy to overlook the small but significant blessings in your life. Look for positive things outside of yourself, because sometimes you can't trust your mind. When you choose to look at the positives instead of focusing on the negatives, you strengthen your courage and your internal capacity to take on life. Look yourself in the eye and realize that you are ultimately responsible for working your way out of this situation. Give up the desire for things to be easy. Deal with circumstances such as you find them. Know that you have the power to live a meaningful and happy life. You have something special. You have GREATNESS within you!
