Live your intentions

Instead of judging in advance whether or not something will be enjoyable, make the intention to enjoy. And then live the reality of your own intention.

Your present attitude does not have to be restricted by your past experiences. Choose an attitude that will bring value and fulfillment, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.

Let the substance of your life flow from your conscious, intentional choices. Decide how you will live each moment, and then follow through with that decision, no matter what does or does not happen in that moment.

The outside world is absolutely real and exerts significant influence. Yet you have even greater influence over the way your life unfolds.

Let go of the assumption that certain situations must necessarily engender certain attitudes and responses from you. In fact, turn it around and allow your positive, purposeful attitude to cast a bright and empowering light on every situation.

Create your own solid intentions of excellence, fulfillment, joy and effectiveness. Then live those intentions, no matter what.

— Ralph Marston
