Reflecting back

This day will reflect back to you the thoughts and feelings you have about how it is going. The world will reflect back to you the expectations you have of how it will be.

The people you encounter will reflect your attitude back to you. The situations you come across will reflect your own perspective back to you.

The shortcomings you notice in others are reflecting similar things within yourself. The beauty you see around you is a reflection of the beauty that is a part of you.

The problems you encounter out there can be most effectively addressed by first considering what they reflect within you. The opportunities out there can best be grasped by first connecting with the part of you that they reflect.

Be your best, and life will be too. Live with integrity, a generous spirit, a positive enthusiasm, and the world will reflect it all back to you.

What you experience is a reflection of who you are. Nurture the value and goodness inside you, and the reflection will be magnificent indeed.

— Ralph Marston
