"Find the good. It's all around you. Find it, showcase it, and you'll start believing in it." Jesse Owens
It sometimes feels like bad news is everywhere you turn these days. Seems like all you hear and read about is bad news, tawdry behavior and all the things that are wrong in the world. This distressing, depressing parade of negative news isn't real inspiring, to say the very least.
It's enough to make you throw your hands up in the air and quit.
What you need more than ever before is a heaping helping of good news. Positive, upbeat, motivating news that inspires you - and makes us feel better about yourself and those all around you. You want to smile, laugh and feel good about things.
But many times the bad news is just too much. After awhile it tears you down. It wears you out. And makes you feel lousy.
"Slow down and celebrate the good in everyone and everything." Matthew Kelly
None of us likes feeling lousy. And not one of us enjoys suffering through one miserable day after another. Yet that is exactly what way too many of us do. We want to do better, feel better and be better, but the unrelenting weight of our daily problems keeps pushing against us.
When things start looking a little bleak, there's a tendency to keep looking that direction. And when things take a turn for the worse, there's a proclivity to go right along with them. Let's face it, it tough to see the good when you're up to your eyeballs in despair and desperation. But that's precisely what you need to do.
You've got to look for the good.
"Do all the good you can by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, for all the people you can, as long as ever you can." John Wesley
You've got to look for the good when problems surround you. You've got to look for the good when difficulties confront you. You've got to look for the good when you're losing hope and are about to give up. You've got to look for the good.
And never, ever stop looking.
There is a lot of good in the world, more good than you can possibly imagine. There are countless good things, good people and good times you can experience each and every day. But in order to find the good, you've got to look past the bad. And that's not always easy, especially on your not-so-good days. But youve got to look for the good - and keep looking - in order to find it.
Instead of focusing on the trouble you're in, you need to look for a positive way out. Rather than worrying about the difficulties you face, you need to focus on where you want to go. Hey, you can choose to stay stuck in the quagmire and stay miserable or you can choose to look for the good.
"Out with the bad and hang on to the good." Scott Hamilton
Once you stop focusing on the bad and start looking for the good, you open your eyes and your heart to a world of goodness, kindness and greatness.
You discover all sorts of positive places you never knew, all kinds of positive people you have never met. In an instant, in the blink of an eye, your life becomes lighter, brighter, full of hope and optimism.
You will feel energized, invigorated and full of optimism and hope. And here's the best part. Not only will you change how you feel about your world, you will forever change the direction of your life.
When you look for the good each and every day, the good will find you.
The Bottom Line: When you start looking for the good, you'll discover it's everywhere you look.
