What we often do not realize is that God is working behind the scenes in everything that we do. God will use the good, the bad, and the ugly for His purpose. We just need to have faith and believe. Whatever happens, God will turn our trials into triumphs.
3. “A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.” – David Brinkley

Being successful means making the best from criticism/objections/obstacles. Criticism and negativity from other people is like a wall. And if you focus on it, then you’ll run right into it.

Life does go on, even though it seems sometimes like it won’t. No matter what happens to us or what we’re going through life will go on. Life always goes on, and if we’re not careful it will go on without us. That’s why sometimes it seems like life is passing you by, because it actually is.

6. “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” – Willie Nelson
The thing about taking out negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones is it’s not that easy. Negative thoughts have a magnetic effect and they attract more negative thoughts and more. So at first you have to be very diligent and just keep thinking of more and more positive thoughts until you displace the negative thoughts. Positive thoughts also have a magnetic effect but it’s not as strong as the pull of negative thoughts. Just stay the course and don’t give up, because you’ll revert back to your old thought patterns.
