Encouraging Excerpts

It is said that one should focus on the positive. Focusing on the positive makes you happier, and puts you in a more positive frame of mind. This is not only good for your mental health, but affects the way others treat you. Many people believe that what you focus on manifests in your life. The formula of prayer is to give thanks for the good things in ones life and to ask without expectation for additional blessings. I've been collecting these the last few months, to look at whenever I felt tempted to focus on the negative.

"I have set your resume on top."

"You're a shoe-in!"
--Dingo line pilot, on reviewing my qualifications

"You're perfectly positioned to take advantage of the industry move."
-- a contact at Zibellina Aviation

"I am very happy to offer you a position on the [Weedwhacker] as Captain."
