It is not our circumstances that make our lives good, it's our attitude towards life that makes circumstances good.
If we have the wrong attitude, things will always go wrong, no matter where we are. It's so important to take things with the right spirit, and grow from whatever that comes along the way. I mean, everyone will be a good person if all things in life are so perfect and rosy. It's adversity that shows us who we really are, what we're made of.
If we hold the right attitude, we'll prosper wherever we are. Just look at Joseph and Daniel.
