Gratitude for Being On Point

Norman Vincent Peale, the author of "The Power of Positive Thinking," said we're off track when we allow ourselves to get trapped in a web of negativity, a spindle of worry, fear and complaint.

Peale said we're on track, however, when we focus on what we want to do. What indelible mark do we want to leave on the world? How do we want to serve?

I'm grateful for this smart road map for how to avoid the detour of negativity. The simplicity for how to stay on point is genius: Just keep your eye on what you want to do.
