Absolutely great

The challenges of each day are difficult enough on their own. There is no need for you to add to them by feeling lousy. In fact, you can feel precisely how you decide to feel. So choose right now to feel positive, enthusiastic, alive and ready to do great things.

Sit up straight or better yet, stand up. Take a long deep breath and let it fill you with pure, positive energy. Put a smile on your face and an enthusiastic spring in your step. Take control of the way you feel and let those feelings empower you.

Not only are you much more effective on those days when you feel positive and fully alive, you’re truly enjoying the experience. So make it happen as often as possible.

Your circumstances do not determine your feelings. Your feelings are the result of how you respond to those circumstances. So respond with a positive, energetic and productive attitude. It’s your choice so make it the best one. It’s your choice, so make the choice that moves you forward and gives you the added benefit of enjoying every minute. Go ahead - let yourself feel absolutely, positively great.

— Ralph Marston
