Look at what’s right

How often do you define yourself by what’s wrong with your life? How often do you limit yourself by using “if only” or “as soon as” as excuses for not living life fully?

Sure, you have goals and aspirations. You can envision a better life for yourself and those around you. But putting down or limiting who you are right now is not the way to achieve that better life.

Rather than dwelling on what is wrong with your life, focus on, celebrate and be thankful for all the things that are right with your life. That is where you’ll find the strength and the resources to make it even better.

How can you ever get up if you keep putting yourself down? Whatever your situation may be, you have many blessings which can move you toward wherever you desire to go. Rather than being held back by your limitations, focus on your existing abundance and use it to pull yourself forward. Start every day by considering what’s right with your life, and by using the good things you have to make it even better.
