Things are likely to get better.

Sometimes it can feel like the world is against us. Things aren’t going our way and we struggle to be hopeful. We may even brace ourselves for what we feel would be the worst possible outcome.

Other than inevitable death—and face it, everyone and everything has a limited physical span—situations are as likely to improve as they are to degrade. It just sometimes can be easier to focus on a downhill trajectory.

When we’re willing to believe in improvement, we lubricate the path toward better outcomes with our belief. Our certainty that things will get better helps make it so.

Today’s message suggests that I focus on improvement, anywhere I am worried about the situation getting worse. When I celebrate even the miniscule wins, I’m more likely to see more wins.

Please reflect and share. What situation could benefit from your belief in a positive outcome?
