A Full Life

Is your glass half full or half empty? How you answer has a huge impact on your family’s future.

Nothing good comes from being negative. And that goes for your career, your future, and your family. If you want to have a positive effect on your kids, as well as a healthy, happy life, then learn to live with an optimistic attitude.

Begin today to only speak out health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. Our words say a lot about the condition of our hearts, so speak out positive thoughts. This means looking for the good in every person and situation.

Also, be excited when others succeed. Jealousy and comparison do no good—and usually lead to bitterness. When you make a mistake, chalk it up to experience and then forget about it. Dwelling on the past only brings you down.
