See the best

What do you see when you look at another person? Do you focus on their faults and weaknesses, or do you look to find something that is worthy of praise? When you value and appreciate the best in others, they will give their best to the relationship.

What do you see when you consider a task that must be done? Do you focus on the problems, the obstacles, and the excuses for not even attempting it, or do you look for the unique opportunities that is surely presents? The way you approach your work will make a significant difference in the results you get.

What do you see when you look at yourself? Do you dwell on your shortcomings or do you focus on your possibilities? The quality of your life depends largely on what you see in yourself and expect of yourself.

See the best, expect the best and you will bring out the best in yourself, in others and in every situation.

— Ralph Marston
