Even prisoners think positive

Here is a man who has been in prison for years – I don’t know how long, or what for – but he is one of the most positive people I have ever met. He greets the staff warmly each morning, keeps himself busy with work, or making cups of tea for the guards, and he steers well clear of trouble.
You might think that a man in his position would be depressed; he his anything but. He has chosen not to be. All of us face hard times in our lives, some more than others, but ultimately we all have the choice of dwelling on the bad things (even if they can’t be changed) or to think positive and see any hardship as an opportunity. Most of us can be happy, just by telling ourselves that we are.
