Get busy

Have you suffered through a difficult disappointment? The best way out is to get busy.

Is there a challenging obstacle standing firmly in your path? The way to get around it is to get busy.

Do you feel lousy because nothing is going your way? You’ll quickly start to feel more positive and empowered when you do whatever it takes to get yourself moving forward.

It may seem natural to whine and complain and feel sorry for yourself. But that will just make things worse.

Instead, put yourself in the business of making things better. Take one small step forward, see how great it feels, then choose to take another and another and another.

Put forth some effort and put yourself in charge of your own destiny. Get busy, get going, and soon the troubles of this moment will be far behind you.
