“Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.” ~Emily Dickinson
If there is one defining difference between positive thinkers and negative thinkers, successful people and unsuccessful people, happy people and unhappy people; it must be their responses to opportunity.
Those on the negative of scale see few opportunities. It’s not enough for opportunity to knock on their door. They expect opportunity to break their door down and plead with them to pursue it. They go through life with arms crossed, doubting everything and everyone, and hanging a big “NO” sign on their foreheads. They can see only the risk and not the reward. And life obliges by constantly appearing risky and saying “NO” to them.
Those on the successful side see opportunities everywhere and are always listening for the lightest knock of opportunity upon their doors. “Never knowing when the dawn will come,” as Dickinson says, these people position themselves to say “YES” to life because they know that is how life will say “YES” to them. They know that there is no reward without risk, but they are able to focus on the rewards. And life obliges by bringing both opportunity and reward their way.
Which are you? When someone comes to you with an idea, do you try to see the vision or do you look for the nearest escape hatch? Do you dream and follow your dreams or consider them a meaningless waste of time? You see, life is watching and it is constantly manifesting precisely what you expect from it.

Choice, my friends, is the foundation of freedom. In modern free societies, you are offered so many choices that you can lose your ability to recognize the critical choices.
Walk down the typical chip aisle in an American grocery store and you’re presented hundreds of choices. You may walk up and down for several minutes trying to make a choice. Turn in your TV and you may ha e several hundred channels to choose from.
These kinds of choices are superficial choices; really almost a distraction. Yes, it’s wonderful to have so many choices, but choosing one bag of chips over another or one TV show over another changes little in the outcome of your life.
The choices that really matter are the ones we’ve fought centuries to achieve and fight today to maintain. Your exact list will be unique to you. However, I wrote these affirmations to cover some of the big ones.
