How to use override in a sentence?

  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Positive attitude is meant to give you influence over your circumstances, rather than your circumstances having influence over you. In other words, it takes you and never anyone else to decide whether or not to override your unfavourable circumstances. That also implies, it's solely up to you to feel overwhelmed or not when faced with unfavourable circumstances. Therefore, do imbibe a positive attitude and never a negative aspect of it. For, surely positive attitude is worth imbibing and portraying and not at all worth rejecting. ~Emeasoba George
