Your mood, outlook & behavior is always under the influence of who & what you choose to pay attention to in life. If you want your life to be more positive, more meaningful or more productive, feed your focus with things that encourage more of what you’d like to see, not less.
Few people ever actively take the time to just stop. To listen. To feel. To breathe. To use the full extent of their senses. And be aware of and fully immersed in the experience of life.
Because it’s a beautiful thing. And powerful.
“Looking at beauty in the world is the first step of purifying the mind.” — Amit Ray
Just taking a moment to connect with the world around you in an intimate way is enough to help provide new insights, a new perspective, and to actively experience the interconnectedness of all things.
It’s enough to realize that we are all playing background characters in each other’s lives — and if we wish, we can not only choose to play a larger role in those lives, we can choose what kind of impact we have.
That we can have a positive impact on someone’s day. That we can make a difference.
That there’s more to life than what most choose to see.

When a person learns to recognize the difference between something that’s actually broken and something that is simply unassembled or unsolved, the manner and attitude with which they approach that thing can have a dramatic impact on its outcome.
If you’ve ever referred to yourself or someone else as broken, understand that the same concept applies.
Don’t be deceived by a world that often implies that you can only be or do one thing in life.
Your true potential in life may lie in your unique combination of interests that will lead to an uncommon set of skills & knowledge that could ultimately result in you to doing or offering something that the world has never seen before.
Yes, the situation you’re struggling with sucks. But answer this question:
Are you going to let it stop you?
If the answer is no, great! But then that raises another question:
If you’re not going to let your current circumstances stop you, what are you doing beating yourself up and making yourself feel miserable when you could be pushing forward and working on overcoming whatever it is you are struggling with?
Sometimes opportunity will come knocking. But most of the time, it’s you that has to get off your butt, go door to door, and do the knocking yourself.
You create opportunities with your actions.
