"Learn to be happy where you are, but don’t settle where you are."

There were two farmers: a positive farmer and a negative farmer. Whenever it would rain the positive farmer would say, “Thank goodness for the rain – now we don’t even have to water the crops.” The negative farmer would say, “If this keeps up it will rot their roots and we won’t have any crops to harvest”. The sun would come out and the positive farmer would say, “Thank goodness for the sunshine. Now our crops are getting the vitamins and minerals they really need.” The negative farmer would say, “If this keeps up it will scorch them and we won’t be able to make a living.” One day they went hunting together and the positive farmer brought along his new bird dog. Once they were out in the middle of a lake in a boat, the positive farmer took aim and shot a bird. He then turned to the negative farmer and said, “Watch this.” The bird dog jumped out of the boat and miraculously ran on top of the water, picked up the bird, turned around and ran back to the boat on top of the water, before setting the bird perfectly in the boat in front of the positive farmer. The positive farmer looked at the negative farmer and asked, “What do you think?” The negative farmer shook his head and said, “Just as I thought, that dog can’t even swim.”
