Don't compare the situation you're in with the perfect situation. Don't compare the outcome you got with the ideal. Compare it with what could have happened that was worse. That helps me a lot.

00:00:18--> 00:00:23

Let me explain. Let me explain, like, you miss your flight, that's something that applies to me.

00:00:24--> 00:00:30

00:00:31--> 00:00:56
