Authentic goodness

Give power to the goodness in your life by giving your gratitude, your attention and your efforts to it. Distance yourself from the negativity that comes your way by letting go of your attachment to it as quickly as you can.

Though there will always be negative influences in your life, you don’t have to let them negatively influence your thoughts. Give the energy of your thoughts and attention to those good influences that move you forward.

Spend your time focusing on whatever lifts you up, and you won’t waste your days hiding from what brings you down. Generously and genuinely give joy, and you’ll keep much of the sadness away.

Remind yourself often of how good life can be. Then live in a way that gives authentic goodness more prominence in your life from moment to moment.

Consider all the abundance that flows through your world each day. Commit yourself, again and again, to transforming that abundance into meaningful, positive value.

Right now, within your reach, there is real, authentic, fulfilling goodness to be lived. Do yourself and your whole world a big favor, and make that goodness a big part of your life.

— Ralph Marston
