Good thoughts are no better than good dreams, unless they be executed.

Inside and out

What happens on the outside matters. Yet the way you choose to be on the inside, matters much, much more.

Outside factors do indeed make life challenging. Yet the inside factors are what allow those challenges on the outside to hold you back, or enable them to push you forward.

You can change the outside world for the better. To do so, you must continually keep a positive orientation on the inside.

What you think about life determines what you’re able to do with your life. The way you feel about life sets the stage for the way you actually live the moments of each day.

Sure, it might go against your intuition to be up when the world seems to be pulling you down. However, you most certainly can do it, and when you do, you can quickly change things for the better.

Make it your intention to be strong, positive, purposeful, compassionate, curious and creative on the inside. And you cannot help but make a significant and beautiful difference in the world around you.

— Ralph Marston
