Choose to focus

Is there something that frustrates you? Don’t focus on the frustration, but rather on the opportunity for improvement.

Is there something that makes you angry? Instead of being consumed with anger, consider the opportunities for understanding.

Is there something that frightens you? Don’t focus on the fear, but rather on the opportunity to better prepare yourself.

Is there something that makes you sad? Rather than focusing on the sadness, be thankful for the fact that you care so much.

Is there something that makes you anxious? Don’t focus on the anxiety, but rather on the positive purpose you wish to achieve.

No matter what happens, you are always free to choose where to focus. Choose to focus on the positive, and you’ll be choosing to bring great value to life.
