Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change. (Wayne Dyer, self-help, author)

It’s the old story of seeing the cup as half full or half empty or noticing the mud rather than the daisy. It’s a matter of perspective, isn’t it? The difference between an optimist and a pessimist is often just the way they’ve become accustomed to seeing things. It might take a little effort but developing a more positive attitude will certainly make things look different to you.

The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)
