There Is Only YouExcerpted and adapted from Johan V. Campbell's "Thought For The Week
Every morning ask yourself "What could I do today that would make a positive difference in my life and the lives of those around me?"
Too often we think 'how can I possibly make a difference. I am not important, powerful, or rich, I am just an ordinary person struggling to make a living. How can I make a difference?"
You are special (we all are) There are things you can do today that only YOU can do. .
You have the power of choice. Everyday you chose how to behave, what to say and when to say it. You have the power to control your attitude. You have the power to make a difference.
You have the power to choose whether your words build or break. You choose whether your contribution is constructive or destructive. You choose whether your influence is positive or negative.
Choose to look for the positive. Do not add to the negative. Choose to be a centre of certainty in an uncertain world. Choose to create a climate of hope and enthusiasm in yourself and the people around you.
It's the 'little things' ..a smile, a friendly word, a helping hand, a sympathetic ear, that can have impact far far greater than you can ever realise.
