Imagination grows by exercise, and contrary to common belief, is more powerful in the mature than in the young.

Aggressively positive

Don’t wait for the challenges of this day to get you down. Rush out to meet them and gain the upper hand. If there’s something that’s been worrying you, stop worrying and start doing something about it.

Don’t limit your positive outlook to just the things that are already positive. Take a positive attitude toward it all. Decide that you’ll find the good in every situation, and indeed you will.

You can think. You can reason. You can make decisions. You can take action. You can overcome difficulties. You can follow your dreams. You can make the right choice. You can persist. You can make great things happen. So do it. It’s a whole lot better than sitting around and watching the world pass you by.

Problems? Sure you have problems. Challenges? They’re everywhere. The problems and challenges are what make life interesting. They’re what make achievements worth achieving.

You’re alive and living, so act like it. Be aggressively positive and you’ll be amazingly effective. Go out and make it the greatest day yet!

— Ralph Marston
