Be Pliable

It’s easy to blame others for your problems and wait till they fix them! But then you never get to rise to the occasion.  When you see yourself as a problem-solver life goes very differently. Identify your strengths. Recall those moments when you triumphed over adversity. Focus on what you can influence instead of what you can’t.”

2) Surround themselves with the right people: The Psalmist said, ‘They… treated me badly all my life, but they have not defeated me’ (Psalm 129:2 NCV). Ned Hallowell grew up with a bipolar father, an abusive stepfather, an alcoholic mother, and two learning disabilities – a history that’s often a precursor to jail or a mental institution. Today he’s a prominent psychiatrist, a happily-married father and a successful author. It happened largely because at boarding school he attached himself to teachers who cared about him and took him under their wing. So in tough times, lean on God, take control of your life, and surround yourself with the right people. (the vine)
