This week’s tip is built around one of my favorite quotes:

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.” – Voltaire

What does this mean to you? To me, it means I need to stop living in the past and move forward with positive action. It’s a little cliche, but Voltaire is illustrating an axiom here. This quote is still remembered today because it contains a universal truth.

Simply letting go of wrongs inflicted on us by other people–or simply negative events in our lives–can determine whether today will be a good day. It can even improve your outlook on life in general. So often, our personal happiness depends on how we react to the things that happen to us. We make that choice.

What choices have you been making? Are you letting the world get you down? It’s tough out there, and it’s perfectly normal to find yourself in a negative rut from time to time. But don’t let that attitude define you.
