My latest mantra to boost positivity

The German version i like:

Wer das Ziel kennt, kann entscheiden;
wer entscheidet, findet Ruhe;
wer Ruhe findet, ist sicher;
wer sicher ist, kann ├╝berlegen;
wer ├╝berlegt kann verbessern.

Konfuzius, chinesischer Philosoph, 551 - 479 v.Chr.

    1. Yes :). It is not so easy to stay positive all the time, these kind of mantras help a lot. I like in this quote that it emphasizes the importance of self-responsibility in our choices, and our capability to influence what happens to us.
