There's a special relationship between the quality of your circumstances and the quality of your response to them. By understanding this relationship, we discover a fundamental life rule for whatever success you seek.
No matter your circumstance, the more significant variable is how you respond to it. People lose great opportunities when they react poorly to advantageous situations. People create incredible value when they respond well to unfavorable conditions.
Nothing ruins good circumstances like bad responses. Nothing compounds bad events like bad responses.
One simple life rule: Always make your response better than your situation.
When your response is better than your circumstance, you improve your situation. When your response is worse than your circumstance, you make the situation even worse.
Circumstances don't dictate outcomes. Whether you face headwinds or tailwinds, opportunity or adversity, make your response better than your circumstances.
The time is now. Do the work.
