Positive experience
 
Positive experience
+++++++++++++++++

The best response to a negative experience is to create a
positive experience. Instead of fighting against life's
misfortunes, transform them into useful and worthwhile
value.

When things go wrong, you have a choice. You can wallow in
self pity or you can seize the opportunity for self
improvement.

In every disappointment there is the seed of fulfillment. In
every weakness there is the seed of strength.

Problems and difficulties provide reliable pathways to
achievement. There is value to be gained from every
experience when you choose to see that value and to bring it
about.

You never have to be the victim of random circumstance, or
of any other circumstance for that matter. For instead of
choosing to be the victim, you can always choose to make a
positive difference.

Life is often unfair, and comes to you in ups and downs, but
that doesn't really matter. For you are free to make of it
whatever you choose.

Ralph Marston
