Live your life and forget your age.
-- Norman Vincent Peale

Things which seem to frustrate you cannot frustrate you. Your frustration is your own doing. Those things which seem to annoy you cannot annoy you. Your annoyance is your own doing.

The world is as it is. The world you see and experience is as you choose to see and experience it. Every bit of everything is filtered through your own perception. And that perception is what you choose it to be.

That is the reason why one person can build a fortune and another person can become impoverished. They both live in the same world, yet each perceives it differently, leading to vastly different results.

If you wish to change the world, begin with your perception of it. See the world as how you would like for it to be, and that is how it will become. Perception is no fantasy at all, but rather your own special flavor of reality. Choose the world in which you want to live and make it so.

— Ralph Marston
