Going great

Have you ever had a day that started out lousy, and then something surprising happened that turned it into a great day? Just imagine how it would be if that same kind of positive turnaround could happen today, or any day when things seem to not be going so well.

The good news is that you don’t have to wait for something positive to happen. Because you can be that something positive.

The way things are going is largely a matter of how you perceive them. And you can perceive them any way you wish. In fact, the events in your life are not actually going anywhere at all. What is happening is that you’re moving through them.

You are making the connection between what has happened and what will happen by virtue of what you’re thinking, what you’re feeling, what you’re doing right this moment. As soon as you decide to go there, you can be on top of the world.

You can decide how things are going. And there’s every reason, right now, to decide that they’re going just great.
