Taking the right action is actually the fastest way to transform negative thoughts into positive ones.
And as Aristotle taught, that begins a ripple effect on you and who you become. When you practice temperate actions, you become more temperate. When you perform noble actions, you become nobler. And when you take courageous actions, you become more courageous.
Ain’t it great!
