Over every mountain there is a path, although it may not be seen from the valley.

Some people

Some people are too shortsighted to be supportive of you. Let that be their problem.

Other people are wise enough and caring enough to confront you with difficult truths. Let that redound to your benefit, and pay close attention to what you don’t want to hear.

Some people will ignore you, and others will smother you with attention. Some will flatter you with no basis and others will criticize you for no good reason.

Take a deep breath, smile, and carry on with your intentions. Be slow to make judgments and assumptions, and quick to forgive.

When anyone blocks your path it’s partly because you have put them there with how you react to their actions. Keep reminding yourself you have other choices.

All the other people in this world can add immensely to your life. See them, think of them, connect with them in ways that enable that to happen.

— Ralph Marston
