A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
Successful people see opportunity, where others see obstacles.
Happy people see the glimmer of light, where sad people see the looming clouds.
Take the bricks, all the negative, all the obstacles, take everything that is trying to drag you down, and use it to stand on, use it to hold you up, and push you forward.
The air is much sweeter, and the view, although viewed by few, is a thing of unrivaled beauty.
