You can’t control all the events that will happen to you in life, but you can choose how to react to the things that do.
If you perform poorly on your algebra test, you have two options:
You can complain that the test was too hard, that you are not a “math-person” and that your family had been too distracting when you tried to study for it.
OR you can make an effort to learn from the mistakes you made, try to understand what you did wrong and ask for help.
The difference between these two approaches is that one is blaming everything around them and thinking that things won’t get better, while the other takes responsibility and is eager to make changes in order to grow and develop.
Who do you think will learn most before the end of the year?
