Nothing ever goes completely dark.
Not your life, not the world, and certainly not your dreams. There is always a sliver of hope, a chance, another possibility. You just need to look for it. Just because the night comes does not mean the day will not return.
When your heart gets broken, look at it as something you need to learn from. What was, was not meant to be. When what you have worked so hard for does not come to fruition, know that something greater is meant for you in due time. When you lose your job, there is something better to be had. When you lose a loved one, their time is up but yours isn’t.
Things happen for a reason, and you may not understand such reasons the moment they happen but you eventually will. Clear your vision of any negative factors and focus on your dreams, on your success. Have no room for anything else.
Look at the opportunities, at the chances. Do not entertain the thoughts of how hard things would be. Any circumstance is better than it actually is. It only looks bleaker than it is depending on how we see it.
Choose to look at the bright side, keep your hope alive and do not let the fear of failure blind you from seeing the silver lining. Sometimes, the tiny flicker of light may be the only thing you need. Do not be afraid to ignite it to intensify your success.
