The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.

Whatever you think

If you think the whole world is against you, it might as well be true. If you think there’s a way to move successfully forward, you will find that way.

What you think about life plays a major role in the way your life unfolds. Whatever you think is going to happen will inform and influence each action you take, so that much of what you think does indeed happen.

If you think the task in front of you will be a tedious, boring chore, that’s what it will be. If you think the job will give you a unique opportunity to express yourself and create new value, it certainly will.

No matter what the reality of your life may be, you can choose exactly what to think about it. The more things you think about in a positive light, the more positive outcomes you will create.

If you generate thoughts of worry, criticism and complaint, you will end up creating even more things to worry, criticize and complain about. If you focus your thoughts on how to allow, encourage and enrich, you’ll find much more richness appearing in your life.

The thoughts you choose to think and hold are the same thoughts that influence every moment of your life. Choose wisely, and live magnificently.

— Ralph Marston
