Is it ignorance or apathy? Hey, I don't know and I don't care.

Feel great right now

How do you feel right now? Ready to enthusiastically start on a new productive day, or ready to go back to bed?

The way you feel, depends on what you’re paying attention to. The quality of each moment is determined by your focus. At any given time, there are thousands of things on which you can focus. You can’t possibly pay attention to them all.

To be miserable, focus on your problems. To be positively motivated, focus on your possibilities. The things you experience, and the things you think about, are your reality. To change your reality, simply change what you experience, and what you think about.

Right now, no matter who you are, you’ve got a lot of great things going for you. Focus on those things, get to work on them, and you’ll find yourself being lifted higher and higher.

— Ralph Marston
