What you seek

When you look for things to complain about, you’ll find plenty. When you look for things to be joyful about, you’ll also find plenty.

So what kind of world do you wish to live in? Do you prefer to live in a world full of annoyance and frustration, or would you rather live in a world filled with opportunities for joy?

You can choose the quality of your world by choosing your focus. You can choose the quality of your life by choosing what you seek.

Seek to be a true, sincere friend, and you’ll find that you have many good friends. Seek to provide real, honest, creative value and you’ll experience much meaningful value flowing into your life.

Whether you realize it or not, whether you like it or not, you are highly effective at achieving the goals that most intensely occupy your awareness. So what exactly are the things that most intensely and most frequently fill your awareness?

Your attitude in every moment defines what you are seeking. And what you seek, is what you get.

— Ralph Marston
