A quote from Ancient Greek philosopher and polymath Aristotle, this quote is all about dealing with the challenges that life inevitably brings us. No matter who we are or what we do, sooner or later, things are going to go wrong, and the way we deal with such setbacks is what defines us as human beings.
Some people give up when faced with difficulties, they just accept there is nothing to be done and let events unfold as they will. But what Aristotle is telling us is that no matter the situation, even when it seems most hopeless, we can find a way to overcome it, if we just try.
Focusing on the light means stepping back from worrying about something and instead looking for the answer. By taking the time to actually look for a solution to your problem, ‘the light’, you will find it. It is a reminder for all of us, that it is easy to be overwhelmed by things and see no way out, but there always is.
As long as we make an effort to look for an answer to any problem, we will find one. Being proactive in life is essential, and that is how we overcome inevitable challenges. Accepting things as they are cannot ever make changes, but looking for that solution, be definition, changes everything. Just the act of seeking that change affects your situation and moves you towards a positive solution. That is how we should always be, seeking the light, seeking an answer.
