God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage the change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
There very well may be things beyond our scope of controls. We may not be able to effect the sun, the moon or the stars, but by taking responsibility for our reactions and emotions, actions n behaviors, and choosing our future's plan is to fully live our life- regarding everything of ourselves within our world...it is that in what enables us to control its effect on us...and in a mannor of speaking, to control it or effect a change upon the unchangable.
The sun will always rise and set, but how we percieve it, what we do concerning it, our actions and reactions...dictate its importance, if any, this event will have upon us. We may choose to exist inside just one building and never even see the actual sun at all while still being social and active. Its the action of doing, right or wrong, that empowers us to overcome anything.
Playing the victum is giving away our power, it is to become powerless and re-active rather than pro-active, to be beaten and remain inside failure. One cant change the fact that in human civilizations there will be crime, but there are things to do to prevent it, to continue on despite it, or to attain justice in the face of it, personally resist it and lead by example. Giving in or giving up is UNHEALTHY and the only thing whatever 'evils' rely on.
Taking personal responsibility for one's own self, honestly, and letting go of the rest freeing ourselves from obsession, really and truly IS 'The Secret of Success', for it is the foundation and frame work in choosing effective and efficient action towards all and any of our goals.
Failure- a stone on a path not the last one called success.
Planless gaol=a wish
Faithless dream=fleeting & amiss.
Progress-little to do with speed-much to do with direction.
Wiser to replace with better choices than to deny human nature-small smarter choice substitutions.
