It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I
can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the
parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be
thankful for the ones that do.
I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a
day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important
than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures,
fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my
circumstances, or my position.
Making the choice to live a positive life is a daily,
sometimes minute by minute decision.

and the way we organize our thoughts and
work routines have enormous impacts on our health, productivity,
financial security, and happiness.
