Have or Have not

A quote that I wrote:
"The hardest thing about life is accepting your limitations, work with what you have and don't worry about what you don't have."  David Alan Binder
Continuing on this theme, how do you “don’t worry about what you don’t have”?
Focus, Dear Writers, focus.
Develop the tunnel vision to focus on “what you have” and the “what you don’t have” will drop out of your peripheral vision.  It will not go away; but the concentration will be using what you have and using it to the exclusion of all else.
An analogy would be that a tree that has had a limb broken off will use the other limbs to grow and reach higher since the limb that broke off no longer is a part of the tree and it moves on quite easily.  As humans this is more difficult but it also means a better and more successful survival and nature is all about survival.
Do not only survive but use your drive to positively thrive, Dear Writers!
