What do you see?

Some people look at the world around them and see endless problems. Others look at the same world and see unlimited opportunities. Some people look at their job and see a way to just get by. Others look at a similar job and see ways in which they can distinguish themselves.

Some look at what must be done and become discouraged. Others look at what can be done and become enthusiastic. There are those who are skilled at seeing the excuses. There are others who are able to see the possibilities.

What do you see? What you see depends not on what’s there so much as it depends on what you’re looking for. Those who enjoy success and achievement are those who are able to see that success and achievement. What you can be, and have, and accomplish and experience depends not so much on where you’re looking as it does on what you decide to see.
