Look Ahead

A major source of discouragement is the mistaken assumption that the future equals the past. It is difficult indeed to keep going when previous experience has produced so much disappointment. But the fact is that life does not have to follow a straight line. At any point, it is possible to change direction.

Great accomplishments often come on the heels of bitter disappointments. Rather than assuming that you're doomed by your past, consider all the ways you can create a bright future.

Each day, each moment is a new opportunity, independent of what has gone before. Learn what you can by looking back, but spend the bulk of your time and attention looking forward. The past may be full of despair, but you don't have to live there anymore.

Your new home is being built in the future and you can make it as wonderful as you wish.

What you ask for

The world around you is whatever you sincerely ask of it. Your life is precisely what you ask of it, with your thoughts, your actions, and your attitude.

All things and events may come and go. Yet, reality is what you choose to do with it all.

The value you look for, and the value you expect, is the value you will find. What you decide to make of anything will ultimately define for you what it is.

What you truly expect to see, you will most certainly see. The way you genuinely expect to live is the way your life will surely proceed.

When you know without the slightest doubt that it will happen, it will happen. Expect the very best, in every moment, with every thought, every action, and it will be.
