Value where you are

See the value in where you are. Consider the benefits of what you have, who you’re surrounded by, the knowledge and skills you possess.

It’s easy to envision better scenarios than the one you’re currently in. Yet the reality is, you are where you are, and there are certain good things about that.

If it’s possible to complain about your situation, it’s also just as possible to find what you can appreciate about it. By focusing on the good aspects and by making use of them, you can multiply and expand on them.

Imagine looking back on this day five years from now. What will you be thankful you had today?

More importantly, what will you be thankful you were able to do? Now is your opportunity to follow that path, to seize upon those positive possibilities.

Fix your attention on what is good, what you can use, what you can do, and resolve to do your best with it all. See the value, see the potential, see the way forward, and put your time and effort into making it happen.
