Unfortunately we don't have control over all things, but we can control the way we think about the world. We are the creators of our own reality and perceptions can influence our reality. If we choose to perceive the world with a positive view, often even bad situations will seem less detrimental because of our hopeful outlook.
Team Player: Voted "Most Social" in school, it still holds true today. I've always loved meeting new people and have never had a problem collaborating with people of all kinds. As the saying goes, Together Everyone Achieves More :)
