Picture yourself

Think of yourself not in terms of your problems. Instead, identify yourself with your most promising possibilities.

Think of yourself not in terms of your regrets or disappointments. Instead, consider all the valuable and useful lessons you’ve learned.

The way you picture yourself has a powerful effect on the reality of your life. And you can picture yourself any way you choose.

Picture yourself expressing the best that is within you. Picture yourself living fully, loving sincerely, giving gladly, and bringing unique value to each moment.

Picture yourself as the joyful, creative and effective person you know you can be. Picture yourself dancing swiftly and successfully past each challenge and limitation.

You hold in your mind a mental picture of yourself. The quality and substance of that picture make all the difference in the actions you take and the results you get.

Make that picture brilliantly superb, and your life will follow right along.

— Ralph Marston
