A positive strategy

There may not be many reasons to be positive today, but you don’t need a reason to be positive. Being positive is a strategy, not a reaction.

The most powerful time to be positive is precisely when things around you are not so positive. In such a case, your approach can dramatically change the situation for the better.

Don’t wait for a reason to be positive. Choose to be positive about your circumstances, about the possibilities, and about what you can do.

Deal effectively with the challenges as they arrive while also looking beyond them. Visualize the positive outcome you have chosen, and let that vision push you forward.

Life changes greatly from day to day, and things will not always be the way they are right now. With a positive perspective, you now have the opportunity to make the future better than the present.

Instead of looking for reasons to be positive, look for ways to express your positive vision. Work to make your life resonate with that vision, and enjoy all the valuable outcomes you create.
