Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

The most positive response

Tell yourself often that problems can be transformed into opportunities. Challenge yourself to find and to appreciate examples in the real world around you.

Then, when a difficult problem drops into your own life, you’ll be ready. You’ll instinctively seek out the most positive, effective and valuable response.

Imagine being able to draw real value out of every situation. Imagine it consistently, and you will begin to do it.

Though you don’t know exactly what they will be, you do know that the challenges will come. So how do you prepare?

Develop and strengthen the belief that whatever may come, you can make something good out of it. Then you’ll be ready to do precisely that.

Instead of being overwhelmed, be ready. When the time comes, you’ll know just what to do, and more importantly, you’ll do it without a second thought.

— Ralph Marston
