“Rule #1 of E+R=O is to embrace the reality of your situation.”
Your circumstances are what they are. Rule #1 of E+R=O is to embrace the reality of your situation. Sometimes reality is inconvenient and uncomfortable. Sometimes reality is advantageous and encouraging.
See it all as your playing field. Acknowledge the way things are and respond to reality, not what you think reality should be. If you want it to be different, you have to start from the way it is now.
When you get opportunity, be ready. When you get adversity, be prepared. Of course it isn’t fair. Doesn’t matter, get better. Believe in yourself. Do the work. Make it happen.
