The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances.

Positive is always possible

Even when a positive response is not the most appropriate response, it is the most powerful. Even when there’s no reason to be joyful, appreciative or enthusiastic, those qualities benefit you greatly.

When darkness is all around, it is still possible to shine a light. And a light in the darkness can abruptly change the situation for the better.

If you’re surrounded by despair, be different than the despair. When you encounter negativity of any kind, respond in a positive way.

What matters most is what happens next. And what happens next is influenced by your attitude and expectations.

Whatever else the moment may hold, it also holds the possibility for progress. Shine your light on the best possibilities, and then act to follow them.

Positive is always possible. With a positive response, you can turn life around when life needs it the most.

— Ralph Marston
