Your outlook determines the outcome. (paraphrase of Linda Brumbaugh, blog writer)
When you begin working on a project or seeking an answer to an important question, are you beginning with an open mind? Our worldview or perspective on life bears a significant impact on our searching. The pessimist is almost always discouraged by the end product of his research. The optimist, on the other hand, is usually pleased with what he finds. Seek with an open mind.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (Colossians 3:2)
