Looking on bright side does not mean we could develop eyestrain.  Let us look forward with hope, not backward with regrets. We could only connect the dots in our lives backward. But we could learn from our mistakes and failures and make sure that the dots will somehow connect properly in our future.

Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back.

We have to trust and have faith in something: our gut, destiny, life, karma,Ö whatever. Above all, when we have faith in God and stick to what is good, what is true, what is honest, what is real, we will always prevail. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

The greatest test of faith is when you don't get what you want but you are still able to say, thank you Lord.

I have learned that life ends when we stop dreaming and stop looking forward to better days; that hope ends when we stop believing and love ends when we stop caring. Letís make life beautiful by dreaming, hoping and loving.

I have also learned that one very important aspect of success is the willingness to stop and to look at things that no one else has bothered to look at. This simple process of focusing on things that are normally taken for granted, that many think cannot be achieved, is a powerful source of creativity and achievement. Excellence can be obtained if we care more than others think is wise; risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, expect and look forward for best outcome more than others think is possible.

No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere.óBrad Gast
