Here is one I came across today that I thought was telling.

Makes a person think.

What do you say?

This isn't a saying per se, it is a way of saying that has had an amazing effect on my attitude towards everything in my life. Instead of saying: "I HAVE TO go to work" (I have to do this or that, whatever this or that may be) say: "I GET TO go to work." (I get to do this or that, whatever this that may be) When I learned about this simple change in wording, I was surprised by how many times I would say, "I have to..." For me, saying "I get to..." instead puts me in a good state of happy anticipation instead of a rueful, sighing, "now I must" state of mind.
