You either get bitter or you get better. You either take what’s been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to you.

You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control how you deal with it.

When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control how you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is.

A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great year. A great year becomes a great life.

There are plenty of difficult obstacles in your path. Don’t allow yourself to become one of them.

Our reaction to a situation literally has the power to change the situation itself.

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

It is the way we react to circumstances that determines our feelings.

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.

A healthy attitude is contagious but don’t wait to catch it from others. Be a carrier.

If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you’re determined to learn, no one can stop you.

Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.

When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.

Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

In the long run the pessimist may be proven right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip.

Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power.

Good enough is the new perfect.

Don’t let the past hold you back; you’re missing the good stuff.

The outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to reflect their inner beliefs.

As long as you make an identity for yourself out of pain, you cannot be free of it.
