The opportunity to respond

You have the opportunity to respond to whatever happens in your world. And the way you respond determines the quality of your life.

What matters most is not what happens to you. What matters most is the way you respond.

You can respond any way you choose. So choose those positive, empowering responses that will move your life forward.

It may seem in certain situations that a negative response is the only possible response, and yet that is never the case. Always, a positive response is just as possible, just as realistic, and a whole lot more beneficial.

Get clear on your purpose and know your intentions. Respond to whatever happens in a way that moves your life in the direction you have chosen to go.

For the opportunity to craft your own response to each event in life is indeed the opportunity to set the direction of your life. Remember always that you have a choice, and use that choice to add great value to your world.

— Ralph Marston
