Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.

The way you feel

As you go through this day, make an effort to notice one small, insignificant little frustration that you’d normally get upset about. Then do yourself a favor, and simply let it go.

Experience, in that small way, the freedom of being in control of the way you feel. And realize that you can extend that control to every situation in which you find yourself.

The little things most certainly do not have to get you down. And neither do the big things.

At any moment, the way you feel is the way you choose to feel. The way you respond is the way you choose to respond.

Do you really wish to be under the control of those who do not have your best interest at heart? Of course you don’t.

Base your feelings on the unique, valuable person you know you are, and on the positive possibilities available to you. Feel the genuine greatness of this moment, and you can bring it to life.
