To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.

Make the choice

Make the choice to feel good about yourself, about your world, about your possibilities, right now. Make the choice and then commit yourself to bringing your positive choices to life.

But how can you feel good about things when things are not so good? Because you can make a difference, and the more positively focused you are, the more power you have to make that positive difference.

There’s no need to deny the reality of the situation. Simply make the choice to see the positive possibilities, to deeply feel the value of those possibilities, and to bring them about.

If there is darkness all around you, make the choice to shine a light of encouragement, hope, empowerment and loving action. Make the choice to focus on your highest vision, and on working your way toward that vision.

It is not quick or easy or convenient to make the world a better place. Yet it is much better than the alternative of giving yourself over to inaction and despair.

Make the choice to look lovingly and gratefully at life, and to see the best possibilities. And make the choice to enjoy living each moment doing what is necessary to bring those possibilities to life.

— Ralph Marston
