Shine a positive light

Feeling negative about your situation only serves to keep you stuck in that situation. Is that really what you want?

The situation may indeed be very difficult. And as such, the best thing you can do is to move positively away from it, leaving those difficulties behind.

Finding the positive possibilities will provide you with a way forward. Looking for the positive aspects of a difficult situation is not naive; it is a shrewd, realistic and effective strategy. Discouragement is never a foregone conclusion. It is only one of many responses that you can choose.

There is indeed a way out, a way forward. Do you want to find that way? If so, then shine a positive light on the situation rather than getting mired in its difficulties. Choose to move forward, and you’ll make a way to do it.

— Ralph Marston
