Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.

What have you decided?

A decision is more than a wish. When you decide to get something done, it will get done. When you truly decide, it’s more than just a vague intention. It’s more than saying you’re going to do it. It’s more than hoping to get it done someday. It is a commitment that you make to yourself. When you truly decide, it will happen.

What have you decided to do? Look around you. Look at your life. Look at the person you’ve become. Look at what you’ve accomplished and you’ll see exactly what you’ve decided to do.

What will you decide to do now? You have the ability to achieve whatever you decide to achieve, to become the person you decide to become, to live the life you decide to live.

Yet ability alone will not get you there. All the resources in the world, by themselves, will not get you there. Opportunity alone will not get you there. You must decide to get yourself there. Then it will happen.

— Ralph Marston
