Turn it around

When some part of life disappoints you, turn it around. Turn your disappointment into determination.

If your effort is not moving you in the desired direction, turn it around. Learn from what has not worked, and gain new insight on what will work.

Any time someone is rude, unpleasant to you, turn it around. Be the stronger one who puts respect, consideration, tolerance, politeness into the situation.

Where there is confusion, disarray, ambiguity, turn it around. By adding focus and positive direction, you can add great value.

There is much energy in every person, place, situation, idea you encounter. And there is always much you can do to point that energy toward a beneficial outcome.

Instead of complaining or running away from a negative situation, or making it into an excuse, take the better option. Turn it around.

— Ralph Marston
