A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition. William Arthur Ward

There is a deep tendency in human nature to become precisely what we imagine or picture ourselves to be. We tend to equate with our own self-appraisal of either depreciation or appreciation. We ourselves determine either self-limitation or unlimited growth potential… The positive thinkers constantly send out positive thoughts, together with vital mental images of hope, optimism, and creativity. They therefore activate the world around them positively and strongly tend to draw back to themselves positive results. This is a basic law of mind action… The positive principle is based on the fact that there is always an answer, a right answer, and that positive thinking through a sound intellectual process can always produce that answer. Norman Vincent Peale
