Recognizing The Need To Reframe Your Life

“If you don’t reframe your failures, you’ll live in that negative space.”

-Anthony Trucks

Let’s face it, failures in life are inevitable. The challenge is recognizing that it is you and only you that can flip that script. As speaker Anthony Trucks says in today’s quote we need to reframe our failures, otherwise we will continue to live a negative space. What I have learned is that when a I experience a failure although it may hurt, it is only temporary as long as I do not give into that hurt. I look at it as being just one way that didn’t work out and there are hundreds of more opportunities out there. Reframe your mindset, reframe you life.

Negativity is a space we do not want to live in because once we do it is that much harder to leave it. We must recognize when negativity comes about and make the move to avoid it at all costs. Failures are ways in which we can choose a different path or method. When one door closes, another opens. Reframing to me is like a do over in life. And we will have lots of do overs. It’s up to us to make those do overs count for a better tomorrow.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards improving your self awareness?
