A great example of this
Hal Elrod – author of “The Miracle Morning” is a great example of this mindset. When he was a successful salesman in his early 20’s, he wrapped his car around a tree and was severely brain damage, but he used that to inspire him to go down his own path and become vastly successful.
Today, he has cancer, and again he’s actively using that as a source of inspiration to keep moving forwards. I’m on his email list and he’s quite open about his battle over the past few months. He chooses to feel gratitude, and he chooses to take all the good from the situation. It’s an incredible mindset to adopt.
