Tell us about a time when everything seemed to be going wrong — and then, suddenly, you knew it would be alright.

I think that things going wrong relies on one’s perception. In my own personal experience, I have found that if I am in a sad place, irrespective of the external circumstances, everything will be wrong whereas if I am in a good place in my head, things might be going wrong, but my attitude is that I will figure it out and I will overcome. For example while traveling and dealing with flight connections, delays, or missing a connection, if I’m already down then I will let my anxiety get the best of me and I won’t focus on the end result which is that I will eventually get to my destination and that is all that really matters, instead I will let the unpleasant circumstances dominate the entire day and put a pall on the trip which doesn’t have to be, I could change that by changing my perception and keeping an optimistic disposition. It is all on me and in my ability to control my reactions and my demeanor or at least that is what I tell myself.
