Want to make a positive difference? You can choose to do that right this very minute. It doesn’t have to be something dramatic. I might be something small. It may not even seem to matter, but to someone it may matter very much.

If the only thing you improve is your attitude, you've done a great deal. Once you decide to have a positive outlook you gain positive momentum. People will notice and react to your positive attitude. In addition, you will discover even more ways to make your world a better place for you and those around you.

No matter what your history or your situation may be, you can make a positive difference. Start with something small, and you'll soon see how you can spread the value and excitement to others.

It's easy to become mired in the constant bombardment of predictions of doom and gloom. We read about it or hear about it on the nightly news, but don’t allow negativity to pull you down. The fact is, you can point your life in whatever direction you choose. This is the power of you.

Decide right now to make a positive difference. A small positive act is enough to get you jump started. Start small and build on it every day to keep it going, and there's no limit to what you can create for you and those you encounter daily.

This minute will quickly pass whether you make use of it or not. Use this time to make a positive difference, and see for yourself how many great possibilities suddenly appear and how others react.

Wade Boggs, the hall of fame baseball player and voted to the Sporting News list of the All Time 100 Greatest Players, said “A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.”
