Find the good

It’s just as easy to choose joy as it is to choose despair. It’s just as easy to imagine the best that can happen as it is to imagine the worst.

It’s really not so difficult to find the good in any situation. You simply have to make the decision to look with positive expectations.

It is just as realistic to respond to life with positive enthusiasm as it is to respond with negativity. And it puts you in a whole lot better, more powerful place.

Take a step back away from your ego. Look objectively and carefully at the way you live each moment.

See that you always have a choice when it comes to your attitude, your actions, your assumptions and expectations. Then imagine arranging all those things into a highly effective positive perspective.

Rather than living by habit and reaction, make the choice to live by intention. Decide that it will be a great day, a great year, a great experience, a great life, and then make it so.
