It's not what you've got; it's what you use that makes a difference.
Sometimes we forget just how much we have going for us. Rather than looking on the brighter side of things, putting our unique talents to use making a difference, we too often sit idle complaining about all of the things we dont have or cannot do right now. And by focusing on that bleaker picture, we inadvertently let the air out of our own balloon.
What we need to remember, especially during those moments when we begin to wonder whether we have what it takes to make things happen, is that we have been blessed with more than enough to make a positive difference. Thats right; way more than enough. By using our unique talents, we can make a big difference in not only our own lives, but in the lives of those around us as well.
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
W. Clement Stone
The brand of attitude you bring to the table each day makes all the difference in the world. Armed with a positive charged attitude, there is virtually nothing beyond your reach. Just knowing you can do it is often 90% of the battle.
When you are energetic and upbeat, your heart radiates with optimism, filled to overflowing with a powerful sense of hopefulness. You know youre going to have a great day you just KNOW it! And it is this kind of super charged attitude that can pave the way for one great day after another.
You're the only one who can make the difference. Whatever your dream is, go for it.
Earvin 'Magic' Johnson
In spite of all of the great things we have going for us, many of us cart around a sour, down in the dumps attitude. So instead of making a positive difference and a positive impact, we languish, mired in a sea of mediocrity. Is this any way for a winner to live? No way!
There's no doubt about it, a negative outlook is a nothing but a great big negative noose around our necks. And any kind of negativity can drag us down, sometimes way down. Worst of all, a rotten attitude can keep us down, maybe even down for the count if we are not careful.
The only sure-fire way to overcome a negative point of view is to overwhelm and overpower it with a tidal wave of positive action. By using what we do have and using it right now, we can get our lives moving and moving in the right direction. Instead of allowing fate and circumstances to shape our lives, we can fashion our own fates by pursuing our goals with all of the fury, fire and fervor we can muster.
We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.
None of us, not even one of us, lacks in ability department. Oh sure, we all possess varying degrees of ability as well as diverse areas of interest. And while we are all different, there is one thing that is common amongst us. Every one of us can make a BIG difference in the world.
Instead of focusing on what others have or what we seem to lack at present, we should concentrate our attention and effort on making the most of our God given gifts. Not sooner or later, but right here and right now! By taking what we have and then building on it day after day, were going to soon see a major difference in the lives we get to live. And well begin to make a big difference in the world around us as well.
The Bottom Line: The world is counting on each of us making a world of difference starting today.
