Life can be tough.

Just ask one of my patients.

They were just told, “you have cancer.”

They’re going through chemo.

But they bring something amazing when they show up.

They bring an attitude with them every day at the clinic.


Possibility of less side effects of treatment today.

Possibility of being cancer-free.

Possibility of living longer than expected.

More family dinners.

We can nurture this attitude too.

Adversity will always be there.

We control one thing.

What we bring to it.

Bring possibility.

Microstep: Whatever isn't currently working in your life today, bring some possibility to it. Even a tiny amount. Like, maybe this will suck less in five minutes.
