    Default Feeling down? Read this and feel better

    My wife just sent this to me and I wanted to share it with you. I thought it was very appropriate for those of us who keep trying to succeed with our websites and whatever it is we do to generate an income, but just haven't seemed to make it yet. Very encouraging.

    Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.

    I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference.

    I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It’s OK to stumble… I will get up. It’s OK to fail… I will rise again. Today I will make a difference.

    You're welcome, Stephen.

    You know, it's funny how sometimes we forget this simple wisdom. At least I know I do. I've read things like this over and over, but seem to fall back into the circular thinking which leads to nowhere. It's probably a good idea to print this out and set it next to my computer so I'm reminded of it more often.

    I loved the article. "Today I will make a difference." Controlling the thoughts might seem easy but there are a lot of things that we sometimes worry about. I read this somewhere and from then on I seemed to have adopted the principle "Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones."
