Things going right

Do you feel overwhelmed by all the things that are going wrong in the world? That’s because you’re ignoring the massively greater number of things going right.

Flip a switch and the light comes on. Do you realize how many things have to go right for that to happen, and to be as reliable as it is?

Consider the electronic screen that delivers all the bad news to you. Thousands of things have to go right, and work in perfect synchronization, for that information to appear.

Bad things do happen, often. Yet every moment of every day, many, many more good things happen, things you don’t even notice.

Yes, pay attention to the problems, act on them, work to solve them. At the same time, keep them in perspective.

Appreciate, support, and maintain all that reliably goes right and works well. You’ll be well equipped to successfully deal with whatever goes wrong.

— Ralph Marston
