The fruition of beauty is no chance of hit or miss... it is inevitable as life.

You control it

What troubles you is not reality itself. What troubles you is your interpretation of reality.

What frustrates you, motivates you, inspires you and disappoints you are not the facts of the situation but how you choose to view them. And in that fact is enormous power.

You are never at the mercy of random circumstance. On the contrary, you are in control of your whole world because you are in control of the way it all affects you.

Your choice in every moment, of how to see that moment, really matters. Your choice of how to respond to whatever comes your way, really matters.

You have great influence over all that matters to you. You can decide what it means to you, and you also control what you do about it.

You could choose to assume that you’re powerless, and your very assumption will make itself true. Or, you can choose to see the real power of your perspective, and use it to create the life of your dreams.

— Ralph Marston
