The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.

What’s right?

As you go through this day, encountering various situations, continue to ask yourself “what’s right about this?” Yes, there are always problems. Chances are you’ve already focused on them. Now, take a look at the accompanying opportunities.

Look for what’s right, look for what’s good, and you’ll find it. Focus on what’s right and you’ll expand it. Be appreciative of what’s right with your life. In your gratitude is the power to make it even better.

When the world seems to be falling apart around you, seek out the positive. Grab on to it and hold on tight. Attending to what is right will carry you through whatever is wrong. When things are bleak, look for the bright spot and move yourself toward it. There always is a bright spot. Learn to see it, learn to value it and you will learn to succeed.

— Ralph Marston
