Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.

Overpower the negative

No matter how menacing the problem may be, you can always find a positive desire that is even stronger. Never forget that those things holding you back are limited and finite, while the dreams that pull you forward have no limits.

As the troubles become more troubling, your best response is not to pull back. Your best response is to reach even higher. As the challenges become more challenging, that’s not the time to run from them. It’s the time to reaffirm your commitment to moving forward. Make your dreams and goals bigger than your difficulties. Overpower the negative aggravations and frustrations in your life with positive possibilities.

Connect yourself with a purpose that will energize and inspire you to the very core. And suddenly even the messiest, most complicated challenges will seem trivial by comparison.

— Ralph Marston
