Who Is Thriving?

When I am at my worst, I consider the constraints in my life with the mindset of a victim.  (“This is terrible!  I don’t have x!  I cannot do y!”)

Two things help break this cycle:

First, I realize that many other people have the same constraints that I do.

Second, I realize that many of these people with the very same constraints are thriving.

I escape from my impoverished mindset when I ask: Why are these people thriving?  Can I do the same?
