Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.
The way you see people is the way you treat them, and the way you treat them is what they become.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

If one has the answers to all the questions - that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself.

It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
