What you’ll find

Whatever you are looking for is what you are most likely to find. Because your attention is naturally drawn toward and flavored by whatever you expect to see.

When you look for reasons to be dismayed, you will indeed find plenty of them. If, instead, you look for reasons to be hopeful and enthusiastic, those are the things you’ll see. When you’re on the lookout for things that offend you and things to complain about, you’ll see them everywhere. If, on the other hand, you look to find things for which you can be truly thankful and appreciative, that is what you’ll find.

Are you looking for excuses to fail or are you looking for reasons to succeed? Are you looking to just get through the day or are you looking to fill each moment with real value?

What exactly are you looking for today? Look for excellence, look for truth, look for value, look for the best, and you surely will find it.

— Ralph Marston
