Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.

What you see is what you get

When you consistently see the best in others, it will bring out the best in you. When you regularly see the positive possibilities in any situation, the best of those possibilities will happen for you.

What you see is what you get. When you look at the world around you, what do you see? Do you see a place filled with problems, obstacles and limitations? Or do you see a place filled with possibilities, opportunities and richness? Do you complain about what you see and what you experience, or are you profoundly grateful for it all?

What you see is what you will get. The way you view life is the way you will live it. When you’re filled with resentment, anger, greed, envy and cynicism, you’ll be quite appropriately miserable. When you look at the world with love and gratitude, when you appreciate the beauty, when you act with benevolence toward others, life for you will be joyful and fulfilled.

Life will unfold for you just as you expect it to. Love, value, and treasure life in the splendor of every moment, whatever the superficial circumstances may be. See the very best and it will be yours.

— Ralph Marston
