This inspiring short film was Executive Produced by Topher Bates and Directed by EMG.

“I will greet this day with love in my heart.”

There is no sunshine without the rain. There is no joy without pain.

Choosing to be optimistic is the 1st victory in the day.

The prizes of life are at the end of the each journey, not near the beginning; and we are not given how many steps are necessary in order to reach our goal.

Failure we may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road.

Never will we know how close it lies unless we turn the corner.

It’s better to act and fail than not act and flounder

I will form good habits and become their slave.

If I waste today, I destroy the last page of my life.

I will always strive to make the next hour better than this one.

To surpass the deeds of others is unimportant; to surpass my own deeds is all.

Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

Each smile can be exchanged for gold and each kind word, spoken from my heart, can build a castle.

Never will I seek delivery of gold, love, good health, petty victories, fame, success, or happiness.

Only for guidance will I pray, that I may be shown the way to acquire these things, and my prayer will always be answered.

I ask not for opportunities equal to my ability; instead I desire that I may acquire ability equal to my opportunities.
