“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”
“It’s better to be an optimist who is sometimes wrong than a pessimist who is always right.”
It starts with just a thought or a feeling. Or maybe with a sentence spoken by someone else.
And then it starts to drag you down.
Into feeling sorry for yourself, worried or into thinking “what’s the point of taking any action at all?” as you walk around in a funk with your own personal rain cloud above your head.
