Another way

Anger is not worth the price you pay for it. Transform it instead into positive resolve.

Despair will only keep you stuck where you are. Choose to exchange it for a good dose of inspiration.

Arrogance will cut you off from the world. Cast it away and replace it with generosity and enthusiasm.

Impatience only brings you mistakes and frustration. Let it go and let peaceful purpose take its place.

For every burden of your own creation, there is an alternative that will lift you up. When you feel yourself being dragged down by the attitude you have chosen, let that be a reminder to choose a more positive approach.

You are in control of the way you look at life. And the way you look at life surely and inevitably determines the way your life will be.

— Ralph Marston
