To arrive at a just estimate of a renowned man's character one must judge it by the standards of his time, not ours.

One small step

There is a small step you can take right now that will put you on the path toward your most treasured desire. No matter how ambitious your goal may be, you already have the ability to move toward it. The direction in which you’re moving is much more important than the speed at which you’re going. Rather than waiting for later when you might could go faster, start moving right now toward whatever you most desire.

Even the small steps each bring you one step closer. Even the small efforts will build your momentum. What do you desire to achieve more than anything in the world? Whatever it is, you can begin moving toward it this very day. As soon as you take that first step, the achievement has already begun to become real. Continue on the path you’ve set for yourself, step after step, day after day, and your commitment will make the achievement come to life.

Think of how great it will feel to be solidly on your way to achieving whatever you have decided to achieve. Then experience that great feeling right here and now as you take that first step, and move forward into the future you’ve chosen.

— Ralph Marston
