Positive response

A positive response is always the most powerful one. For a positive response puts you firmly in control.

When you encounter anger, respond with love. And you’ll make the anger almost impossible to sustain.

When you come up against frustration, respond with patience. And the frustration will grow weaker with each passing moment.

In the face of dismay, respond with kindness. And the light you shine will chase the darkness away.

When you’re faced with challenge, respond with gratitude. And in that challenge, you’ll uncover immense opportunity.

No matter what life may hand you, there is always a positive response. Choose that positive response, and put yourself on the winning side.

— Ralph Marston
