Live Your Life As An Exclamation Not An Explanation

Both enthusiasm and pessimism are contagious. How much of each do you spread?.Words Have Power:.Your words reflect what you believe about your future. Just to see how it feels, for the next twenty-four hours refrain from saying anything bad about anyone or anything. "The difference between the right word and almost the right word is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug," said Mark Twain.

The person who finds the negative seldom finds anything else. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Children are born optimists; then the world slowly tries to educate them out of their "delusion." The fact is, the more you complain the less you'll obtain.Some people always find the bad in a situation. Do you know people like that? Think about it; how many successful complainers do you know? Many a great idea has been quenched by wrong words.

Don't spend your life standing at the complaint counter.A wise old owl sat on an oak,
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why aren't we like that wise old bird?
(Edward H. Richards).- John Mason, from his latest book, Dare To Be.
