Listen to or read something positive every morning. Take an online self improvement course and actually make a practice of spending 15 minutes to get your mood set for the day.

You’ll be surprised how much energy you can derive from just even reading one positive thing. “Make not your thought your prisons. ” William Shakespeare

Visualization is the precursor of reality. Jack Kilby, an electrical engineer working for Texas Instruments, designed a product, the integrated circuit that would one day support an electronic market of $1,275 billion dollars. “Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not. " - George Bernard Shaw
