Upside potential

Life is biased toward the positive. You can only fall so far, but there is no limit to how high you can soar. There are points at which life cannot get any worse, but there is no point at which things cannot get better. You can only lose so much, but there is no limit to what you can gain.

With every setback comes a real opportunity to grow and move forward. And with every triumph, further triumphs become more likely. In every situation there is positive potential.

Yes, the risks are there. Yet the risks are finite. Possibilities are infinite. Consider the incredible upside potential of your own life. No matter where you are, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in, your possibilities always outweigh your problems. Those positive possibilities are yours for the living.

— Ralph Marston
