Thankful to live

Teach yourself to love the effort. Train yourself to delight in the challenge.

Asking will get you a few things. Action will get you much more.

Discipline yourself to keep on going when the past results have let you down. Remind yourself how much better life is when you’re fully engaged in being of use.

Caution yourself against cutting too many corners. Enjoy yourself as you work to do a good job with whatever must be done.

Seek the satisfaction of knowing you’re making a difference. Experience the sense of fulfillment that grows with every step you take along the way.

Live each day as an opportunity to give the best you have. And live the kind of life you can truly be thankful to live.

— Ralph Marston
