An empowered day

If you catch yourself feeling sorry for yourself you’ve discovered a valuable opportunity. You can transform the negative energy of self-pity into positive energy to improve your situation.

When you’ve been disappointed by life, take a step back and look at the positive value in that disappointment. You have a powerful reason to become more determined than ever before.

Life has its ups and its downs. And you can choose to benefit from both.

Success is not a matter of having everything go your way. Success comes from choosing to find the value in whatever way things go.

Don’t waste your time and energy making judgments about whether you’re having a good day or a bad day. Decide to take whatever comes and make it into an empowered day.

Whatever form it takes, life is always supplying you with the raw material for fulfillment. Make good use of it all to move your life surely and steadily in the direction of your dreams.

— Ralph Marston
