We win half the battle when we make up our minds to take the world as we find it, including the thorns.

Choose a positive outlook

Life will always challenge you, yet it never has to defeat you. Even when things are extremely difficult, there is no good reason for despair.

In fact, your best choice is always a positive outlook. That is what will give you the most power to deal with whatever life brings.

Yes, it is certainly possible that things could get worse. However, it is just as possible, and much more preferable, that you act to make life better.

The future hasn’t happened yet. A large part of the way it unfolds is up to you, your attitude and your actions.

Make your future the best it can be by making your outlook the best you can imagine. Though it can be easy to be discouraged based on past and present experience, you have a much better choice.

Choose to look forward with the highest, most positive expectations. And get busy bringing those high expectations fully to life.

— Ralph Marston
