Best Practice: Consciously choose your attitude.
“We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them.” — Epictetus in The Enchiridion
“From the most simple task to the most complex, if you are not in a state of either acceptance, enjoyment, or enthusiasm, look closely and you will find that you are creating suffering for yourself and others.” — Eckhart Tolle in A New Earth
Take another look at the Tolle quote above. The selection in bold tells the whole story. The graphic below illustrates how one man’s thrashing against reality – his self-chosen misery – is creating suffering for himself and others!
