Chapter 3, Page 25, Book 14

Whether one is twenty, forty, sixty, or eighty; whether one has succeeded, failed or just muddled along - life begins each morning! The greatest fact in life is that it is never too late to start again. Biography simply overflows with inspiring examples of this truth. However discouraging your days may have been, keep this thought burning brightly in your mind: life begins each morning!

Todays Focus:  Give up negativism----be positive.

Lent is a great time to get rid of the bad and the ugly. Throw out all your old beliefs, memories, limitations, guilt, fears, doubts, and images that are no longer serving you. Negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment. The more you give in to your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. 

 Remember:  Being grateful helps appreciate what you already have.

Positive thinkers achieve more, live longer and are happier than negative thinkers.  You can choose to have depressing, negative thoughts or inspirational, positive thoughts; your attitude determines your mindset, which in turn determines your behaviors and the outcomes in your life.

Life is not so much a matter of position as of disposition.

Great words of wisdom this morning. Just the kind I need as I woke up to snow on the ground. I will try to think positively about this turn of events and not let it ruin my day. Blessings

That is a great focus for today to give up negativism and be positive! I think I'll print that out and put it by my work desk; will definitely help to have the right mood for the day!



My daughter is a positive thinker. But unfortunately she has a dark cloud following her wherever she goes.
