We can do either one. We can stress and freak out about a situation or current circumstances. Or we can scheme to come up with a plan and move forward.
Perception is everything. Sometimes just rubbing your hands together, flashing a big grin and scheming to take on a problem is a significantly better way than just floundering around in a stressed-out stupor. Easier said than done but the payoff is enormous not only for us, but also everyone around us.
