Empowering choices

When you’re in a position to complain about anything, you’re also in a position to do something positive about it. And that’s a whole lot more effective than complaining.

If you have a good reason to be angry, you also have a good reason to point the energy of that anger in a positive direction. By doing so, you’ll create new value for all concerned.

Whenever something is frustrating you, you’re highly motivated to find a way to move beyond it. Harness the energy of that frustration to improve the situation or to grow yourself beyond it.

Any time you experience disappointment, you’ve learned a valuable lesson. From there you can go forward, and make that disappointment into a positive turning point.

Every day, life comes your way, and it’s difficult to predict or control exactly what lands on your doorstep. Yet no matter what you get, you always have the choice of what to do with it.

You’ve made great, empowering choices in the past and you can continue to do so, day after day. With thankfulness in your heart, keep going on the positive path you’ve chosen.

— Ralph Marston
