Positive outlook

The best time to put yourself in a positive frame of mind is when you don’t feel like it. That’s when it can make the biggest difference. But how do you do that? How do you get yourself up when circumstances have you down?

You simply decide that you’re going to do what’s best for you. And what’s best for you is to move positively, confidently forward.

No, you may not feel like it at the moment, when things are not going your way. But ask yourself a simple question. Would you like to make things better or would you prefer to make things worse? If circumstances are not to your liking, why would you want to prolong them for even a single moment more?

The more negative you feel, the more reason you have to quickly get yourself into a positive frame of mind. It will truly and reliably work wonders.

— Ralph Marston
