Bob Proctor

Have you ever paid any attention to the idea that there are “two sides to everything?” Think of how often you have heard that.

Look at your hand. It has a front and a back side. Your body has a right and a left side. The automobile or room you are in has an inside and an outside. You couldn’t possibly have one without the other. This is an orderly universe, of which you are a part. The whole universe is governed by laws.

The father of the space program, the late Dr. Warner Von Braun who said the natural laws of the universe are so precise that we do not have any difficulty today building a space ship, sending a person to the moon and timing the landing with the precision of a fraction of a second.

The law I am referring to today is the Law of Polarity or the Law of Opposites.

If it is a long way up to the top of a building, it must be a long way down. If it is a mile from point A to point B, it must be a mile from point B to point A. They are not only opposite, they are equal and opposite.

Everything that happens in your life today will either appear negative or positive. Keep in mind whatever happens must have a positive side to it.

A large majority of the population seems to be mentally programmed to pay attention to the negative side of life and unfortunately, ignore the positive.

We must decide that, regardless of what happens today, we are going to look for the positive aspect of what’s happening. Remember… every cloud has a silver lining. We should do this again tomorrow and the next day until it becomes a habit to see the positive in everything. We will feel better, we will be more productive, and we will have more friends.
