The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax.

Can you see?

What if you were less concerned about what others think of you, and more concerned about the truth and quality of their lives? How would that change the things you say and do?

What if you could see every situation from a perspective that’s two or three levels higher than your current one? Would that improve the quality and effectiveness of your responses?

What if you could instantly remember the sum of all difficulties you’ve overcome? Would that make you less worried and anxious about the future?

What if you decided at the beginning of each day to be positive about life no matter what might happen? Would that enable you to spend more energy solving the problems and less time complaining about them?

What if you could see at a glance how deeply interconnected you are to each person you encounter? Would you approach those interactions with more kindness and generosity?

What if you make each choice, and act in every moment, like the very best person you can imagine yourself to be? Can you see the positive difference you will make in the world?
