To be aware of a single shortcoming in oneself is more useful than to be aware of a thousand in someone else.

Positive initiative

A smile will give you something to smile about. Just try it and see. Offer an encouraging word and suddenly you’ll have a reason to be encouraged. It works every time.

Be positive and you’ll have something to be positive about. Rather than waiting and hoping that something good will come along, be the something good that comes along.

You always have the ability and the opportunity to change the world for the better in your own special way. Every moment that goes by is a moment you can use to move positively forward, when you choose to do so.

If the day seems too dark, fill it with the light of your love and laughter. If life seems too discouraging, give to it your positive energy.

The situation is always ripe for someone to step forward with a positive initiative. Be that someone, right here, right now, and see how great it can be.
