Neti, neti. Not so, not so.
Change can come in either of two important ways:
Start behaving positively or
Stop behaving negatively.

Your day will go the way the corners of your mouth turn.
Make your life a masterpiece; imagine no limitations on what you can be, have or do.
You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind.
Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.
I know for sure what we dwell on is who we become.
Be careful of what you often think about. If it’s something negative, you can become a negative person. On the other hand, if it’s something positive, you’ll become more positive. Try to think on the bright side of things when you can.
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have life itself.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
The words you speak become the house you live in.
A strong, positive self image is the best possible preparation for success.
Nourish the mind like you would your body.The mind cannot survive on junk food.
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you can never see the shadow.
