Let it push you forward

You don’t have to be annoyed. You can be inspired.

You don’t have to be frustrated. You can be motivated and determined.

The way you respond is not dictated solely by the situation. The way you respond is decided by you.

No matter what has happened, your attitude is a choice that’s made by you. Instead of letting the interruptions, distractions and frustrations get you down, you can just as realistically choose to let them push you forward.

It’s natural to assume that negativity must make you negative, and that you must have some kind of positive reinforcement in order to be positive. But that’s not the case at all, because you can choose to move positively forward no matter what.

Decide that you’ll let both the good things and the bad things push you ahead. And be amazed at how far you can go.

— Ralph Marston
