According to Jon Gordon, when you are grateful, you will find more things to be grateful for.

I would add that when you are optimistic, you will find more things to be optimistic about.

When you start looking for opportunities, you will identify them everywhere.

When you focus on making progress towards your goals, you will get closer to them.

Our thought processes are important.

They can help us to progress or to hold us back.

They can give us an understanding of what is possible or fool us into believing that we are helpless.

Protect them.

Take control of them.

Continually remind yourself of how you should be thinking.

And in doing so, change the world!
