The Way Forward

18 08 2006

Sometimes the world appears to be spinning out of control. Sometimes there seems to be no end to the distressing news.
Sometimes it feels like troubles are being piled on top of troubles. Sometimes it can look as if there could never be a way forward.

And yet, that way forward is always as close as your next thought. For no matter how difficult and discouraging life may have become, with each dawning moment, a new world of positive possibilities opens up to you.

From the darkest depths of despair, hope does indeed grow and take flight. Out of difficult situations, new strategies emerge for creating real value and spreading life’s goodness.

Remember that the future does not have to be an extension of the past. For you can act right now to create that future out of the abundance of positive possibilities.

Life always has its challenges, and those challenges are what enable you to bring real value to life. Whatever the circumstance, step boldly forward and choose to move the world positively ahead.

Have the Courage

16 08 2006

Have the courage to appear foolish, for the real fools are those who never attempt anything. Have the courage to make mistakes, for they can teach you like nothing else can.
Have the courage to take action. For even though your actions carry the possibility of failure, if you never act then you are certain to fail.

Have the courage to live each day fully, with enthusiasm and a generous spirit. Though there are many problems in this world, there are a whole lot more positive possibilities.

Have the courage to do what is right instead of what is easiest or most convenient. It will earn you the respect of others and, even more importantly, the respect of yourself.

Have the courage to see and accept things for what they are. That will put you in position to make a real difference.

Have the courage to love, to speak your mind, to follow your curiosity and your passions. Have the courage to give of yourself, for the goodness you give will come back to you over and over again.
