There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Turn it into determination

Your frustration is understandable, but it’s going to keep sapping your energy and blinding you to your best possibilities. As soon as possible, turn it into determination.

Your anger is well-justified, yet if you lash out in anger you’re going to do things you regret. Get yourself to quickly transform that anger into determination.

Whatever has happened, whatever you’re feeling, you can harness the energy of that feeling and point it in a positive direction. You can respond with determination.

Just because you’ve been hurt is no reason to add to the hurt. Instead, go in the direction of value, joy, forgiveness and healing.

Whether it’s a small inconvenience or a big disruption, it doesn’t have to drag you down. You can choose to stay in control, to stay effective and positively determined.

Create value instead of regret, spread joy instead of retribution. Let all the ups and downs give you more determination to make life the best it can be.

— Ralph Marston
