Flowing through you

Let the best of life flow through you. Let yourself be a conduit through which life's amazing substance comes into the world.

Listen, watch, be aware, pay attention, be open, and allow the goodness to come to you. Then let that goodness come from you.

Take in and appreciate what is meaningful, and give it new meaning. Listen to the songs of life and then sing them with your own voice.

Experience the beauty and wonder of life's abundance that is all around you. Then add to that abundance in your own special way.

Feel how good it feels to be where you are, to be what you're doing. Then share that feeling in positive, creative and valuable ways.

Find joy as the best of life flows into your life. And delight in adding your own luster to that joy as it flows on far beyond you.

You can make it better

Maybe you haven't been knocked off track. Maybe you've found a better way.

Perhaps the challenge is not there to punish you. Perhaps it is there to strengthen you.

When something disappointing happens, you don't have to automatically assume that it's a negative. In fact, you can find a way to make it a positive.

No, life won't magically be transformed into a wonderful experience just because you say so. However, there are always plenty of things you can do to make it better and better.

Remind yourself that there's a positive response to whatever happens, and you'll find that positive path forward. Commit yourself to making a difference, and you'll discover countless ways to do so.

No matter what happens, choose to see the positive possibilities. You never have to settle for the way life is, because you can always make it better.

Be more

You can be more than you've been. You can be more than you've even hoped or dreamed or imagined.

You can learn more, do more, achieve more, give more, experience more, laugh more, love more and live more. You're fully capable of all that, and more.

No matter where you've been or what you've already done, you can ask more of yourself. Then, you can truly enjoy the experience of making it happen.

By raising your own expectations, you put yourself on track to lift up the whole world. And the world will always welcome some more positive goodness and substance.

Ask more of yourself, of your life, of your skills, resources and time, and then deliver it. Seek to live in a permanent state of growth and improvement, and you will live well indeed.

You can always be more, and do more, and add more to the miracle that is life. Be more, and feel your growing positive energy as it fills your world.

Make a new adventure

The possibility for adventure is here and now. Put some in your life today.

Don't settle for a day that's just like the day before. Make the decision and make the effort to put some real adventure in it.

Get yourself in a position to experience life in a way you've never experienced it before. Do something that you can get excited and enthusiastic about, and that you can treasure for a long time to come.

You don't have to travel to exotic places or get yourself in tight situations to enjoy a good adventure. Simply get a little bit outside your comfort zone, reminding yourself that you're perfectly capable of enjoying new and different experiences.

A good adventure will deepen your appreciation for the life you're so fortunate to have, and for the possibilities available to you. So step away from your comfortable routine and feel the thrill of a new and exciting challenge.

See today as an opportunity for adventure, and make that adventure happen. Make a new adventure, and add new richness to life.

Something today

There is something you can do today that will move your life in a positive direction. Though you may not fully reach your goal today, you absolutely can reach toward it.

Achievement requires time, and with each dawning day you have a new supply of time. Put that time to good, meaningful effective use, and the achievements will come.

Today can be a waste of time or it can be a valuable use of your time. The choice is up to you in every moment.

Imagine how it will feel at the end of this day when you know you've made some good, solid progress. Imagine it, and then don't hesitate to get going and to make it real.

This day has great possibilities and massive potential value. Claim that value by diligently working to bring those possibilities to life.

Today has arrived, and there are a whole lot of useful things you can do with it. Go ahead, right now, and enjoy making the satisfying progress you know you can make on this day.

Good time for love

This is a good time for love. This is a good day to reaffirm your commitment to live from a perspective of love.

Yes, in a world that sees too much aggression and evil intent, living from love might seem to be naive. Yet when you actually live the moments of the day with love as your guide, you realize and experience its great value.

Choose to put more love into your encounters with those who are close to you, and even with those who are not. Love gives you a certain positive power that cannot be achieved in any other way.

The love you experience and benefit from grows more abundant as you direct more of it toward others. Create more love, for there can never be too much.

There have been times when you've felt how truly powerful love can be. Remind yourself of those times, and remember to put more of that power into your life and your world.

Let authentic love guide your actions large and small. And your life will move in a positive, truly enriching direction.

Be the positive difference

When it's difficult to be positive, that's when being positive can make the biggest difference. When you don't feel like being focused and disciplined, that's when focus and discipline can profoundly improve things.

Just because conditions are extremely challenging, doesn't mean you have to be negative about them. You have an opportunity to make a positive difference, and the best way to do that is to be the positive difference.

Let your attitude be based on the best possibilities, rather than dictated by the worst problems. When things are not they way you'd like them to be, then be completely different than the way things are.

Take it upon yourself to be the positive difference. Focus your energy on forging your way forward, and make the choice to take everything else in stride.

If everything were perfect, you'd have nothing useful to do. Be truly thankful for the opportunity to be useful, and vigorously seize that opportunity.

Be the difference, see a better world, and work to bring that better world to life. Be the difference, and make the positive difference that you're here to make.
