When conditions change, sometimes for the worse, there is no need to despair or be disappointed. We have the ability to respond and adjust.

With every new situation, there are plenty of new opportunities. Every setback represents a new starting point from which we can elevate ourselves to higher levels of achievement.

When things don't go our way, there is no reason to give up or become disappointed. Actually, unexpected challenges make our worthwhile goals even more valuable.

There is always a way to get where we have chosen, or need to go. Each challenge gives us new ways of adding value to our dreams.

Life can be overwhelmingly abundant. When conditions change, we have the chance to experience aspects of that abundance we did not realize were there.

Pause for a moment, take a deep breath, assess the situation, and re-focus yourself on the path you have chosen. Then boldly and enthusiastically move forward with more positive determination than ever.

Carol Burnett (1936 - ), the noted actress and comedian, said “Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.”
