The very best

Reach for the very best thing that you can dare to imagine. Even if you do not achieve it on the first attempt, you still win because of the person you become in the pursuit.

Continue reaching with true and genuine purpose, and stretching your limits, and growing. Real and lasting success comes to those who have the commitment to make a third, a fourth, a fifth attempt.

What possibility are you pursuing right now? What purpose are you following? Is it the highest and best you can imagine? If not, then why are you devoting your precious life and time to anything less?

It is never too late, and it is never too early to start reaching for the best you can imagine. Every moment of your life can be enriched when you live it with a real and abiding sense of purpose. Every day will be special when you live it true to your most deeply felt purpose.

In pursuit of that purpose you’ll find a richness beyond compare. Today is indeed the best day there is to reach for the very best you can be.

— Ralph Marston
