Overcoming the negatives of life to a positive

Some people are like thermometers. If their environment is negative, they are negative. If bad things happen, they are sad. If good things happen, they are happy. They are simply a product of their environment. Successful people, on the other hand, are more like a thermostat. Even if their environment is negative, they choose to be positive. Sadness, disappointment, and severe challenges are events in life, not life itself and letting this events define you won't minimize how hard they are. 

They can extend over a long period of time, but they should not be allowed to become the confining center of everything you do. 

The Lord inspired prophet Lehi to declare the fundamental truth, “Men are, that they might have joy.” That is a conditional statement: “they might have joy.” It is not conditional for the Lord. His intent is that each of us finds joy. It will not be conditional for you as you obey the commandments, have faith in the Master, and do the things that are necessary to bring you joy here on earth.
