Get life going your way

Don’t wait for life to go your way. Get your own thoughts and actions going your way and the other things in life will reliably follow along.

Step forward and take a positive, active role in creating your own future. Instead of worrying about what might or might not happen, work to make what does happen the best you can imagine.

With every moment and every choice, you have an influence on the way your life unfolds. Instead of being a victim of circumstance, find ways to utilize each circumstance for meaningful, positive purposes.

Though you cannot control every influence in your life, you absolutely can control what you make of those various influences. Make the choice, again and again, to make the best of them.

Take what comes, whatever it may be, with gratitude and positive expectations. Do what you must to make something good out of it.

There is always a way forward, so take it. There is always something useful, valuable and positive you can do, so do it, and get life going your way.

— Ralph Marston
