Just as iron rusts from disuse, even so does inaction spoil the intellect.

What gets through

Get in the habit of finding the positive aspects in everything around you. Then, when a new situation arises, you’ll easily and naturally see the positive possibilities.

When you surround yourself with goodness, then everything that comes your way must first pass through that goodness. And in so doing, it takes on a positive flavor.

Your perspective is a filter through which everything passes before you experience it. Through practice and intention, you can determine what gets through that filter and what does not.

Being positively focused is not a matter of denying or ignoring reality. It’s a matter of choosing how to experience and respond to reality.

You could do that with an attitude colored by defeat, resignation and resentment. Or you can respond to reality with wonder, awe, enthusiasm and the most positive of expectations.

Make a point to view what has already happened in a positive light. And you’ll find even better things coming your way.

— Ralph Marston
