Choose to be positive

When you feel good, you make the world a better place. Because when you feel good, that good feeling flows out from you into others.

It is not selfish or self-centered to feel good. What’s selfish is to burden the world with more negativity.

Give yourself permission to rise above that negativity. Give yourself permission to be a positive influence in this day, and every day.

You don’t have to react to misfortune or disappointment by bringing yourself down. You can just as realistically move forward in a positive way.

Decide that if the worst happens, you’ll respond by being your best. Decide that when the best happens, you’ll grab the opportunity to make it even better.

Choose to be positive, helpful, encouraging, compassionate and joyful, no matter what. And add new richness and beauty wherever you go.

— Ralph Marston
