It’s funny, because just before seeing this on Facebook, I’d been watching this video from Dr. Mike Evans about dealing with stress … and he focuses on this quote, too, in the context of squashing stress and improving your life by changing the way you think.

It comes down to this: the bigger the space you can cultivate in your mind, the bigger the freedom you will experience in your life.
