Everything that’s right
+++++++++++++++++++

Here’s an interesting irony. You are able to see what’s wrong with life precisely because there’s so much right with life.

All the good parts give you the luxury of being able to consider what’s not so good. All the things that work correctly enable you to fix what’s broken.

Whenever anything goes wrong, it’s easy to feel dismayed. You’ll be much better off, however, if you use the occasion to remind yourself how good you have it.

Life’s troubles exist within a larger context. That context includes the beauty and abundance of life and all its positive possibilities.

If all you do is obsess over what’s wrong, that disconnects you from your power to move forward. Instead, consider all you still have going for you, so you can make good use of it.

Remember and appreciate everything that’s right with life. Then you can effectively deal with everything else.

I Have a Dream

The dream inside
+++++++++++++++++++

Inside you is a dream. Inside you lives a vision of life at its absolute best.

The world will tell you your dream is unrealistic, and it probably is. But being realistic is not the purpose of your dream.

The dream inside has great value, no matter what it is. For it is authentic, it embodies your highest ideals, and it will drive you to do amazing things.

Pay heed often to that dream, for it guides you in a positive, fruitful direction. It shows you what really matters, and pushes you to be your best in every situation.

You live in an abundant universe, but the abundance by itself has no meaning. What’s inside you is what makes it all matter.

Feel that warm, persistent richness of the dream that lives inside. Go ahead, let it give energy and positive purpose to all you do.

Opportunity to love

love

Opportunity to love
+++++++++++++++++++

See it not as a chance to criticize. See it as an opportunity to be patient, an opportunity to love.

See it not as a disagreement. See it as insight into the other person’s perspective.

Get your ego out of the picture and amazing things happen. You don’t have to waste energy being offended, angry, or resentful.

Though you have every right to be frustrated, you have every reason to let it go. Though you are justified in feeling sorry for yourself, that is never your best option.

Focusing on yourself attracts stress. Loving others, loving life and its miraculous beauty, enables peace.

Every encounter, every situation, every moment is an opportunity to love. See the opportunity, take it and live it, now.

Be Good

good

Feel good by doing good
+++++++++++++++++++

It feels good to do good, to be good. It feels good to help, to make a difference, to shine a bit of positive light into the world.

By simply offering a genuine smile, a friendly word, you can make someone else’s day. It will make your day as well.

You have the power to brighten the world. Use that power, and live in that brighter world.

Honest consideration will tell you it really doesn’t feel so good to push people out of your way. No lasting satisfaction comes from abusing or minimizing others.

There’s something that feels much better than winning at the expense of others. It’s winning in a way that benefits all.

Create positive people, positive feelings, positive experiences everywhere you go. Feel good by actually doing good, and make life better for everyone.

Stay in motion

9-10-16

Stay in motion
+++++++++++++++++++

When life is going your way, keep going. When life is not going your way, keep going.

Don’t let yourself be stopped by the pain of failure. Don’t let yourself be stopped by the complacency of success.

Stay in motion, and you can choose your direction. Stay in motion, or you’ll get pushed around by forces outside your control.

It’s not always easy to stay in motion, yet it is always the best choice. Persist, and nothing can keep you down for long.

Build value on top of your victories and build value on top of your defeats. Stay in motion, and everything is an opportunity.

Give yourself the advantage of a powerful and prolonged momentum. Stay in motion, and stay in positive control of the way your life unfolds.

Where your focus points
+++++++++++++++++++

When the camera’s focus is altered, the photograph changes dramatically. When the focus of your awareness changes, your whole life changes with it.

The quality of life you live is dictated by which portions of life you focus upon. The world appears different for every person because every person brings a unique focus to it.

To quickly change your life, change your focus. In an instant, the picture is different.

Focus is a powerful tool you can deploy to see the big picture, the small details, and everything in between. Focus shuts out the distractions, tosses away the irrelevant, and leverages your passion.

The direction of your focus maps out the direction of your day, your year, your life. The span and persistence of your focus will enable you to achieve the most ambitious goals.

Where your focus points, you cannot help but follow. Keep it always pointed in a positive, meaningful direction.
