Principle No. 10: Sharpen your focus on the positives and nurture them. You choose the lens through which you see the world.
Everybody loves the sunshine. It’s an eternal truth. In Washington, more than anyplace I’ve lived, when the sun is out, people are outside and active. When the sun is absent, we retreat inside only to reemerge when the sunshine returns. You choose the lens through which you see the world. It is the conversation that I have with young people dozens of times each day. We are in control of what we choose to focus on during the course of the day. We could focus on the negatives or we could shift and fix our focus on the positives. We must make a conscious decision to magnify the golden moments, the sunshine in the day, so that they overpower the darkness that can easily overtake our focus.
