“Two prisoners looked out from behind their bars, one saw mud and the other saw stars.”
This is one of my favorite lines from Dale Carnegie’s “How to Stop Worrying”.
What a great reminder that no matter our circumstances, we can choose to look at the beauty and goodness of life or we can choose to look at the mud.
Are there times when you are focusing on the mud instead of the stars?
Next time you are looking at the mud, remember the line above and choose instead to look up at the stars.
Make it a great day.
Blatant sales pitch: I would highly recommend both “How to Stop Worrying” and “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. Both of these are in my top 10 list of books.
