If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less-than-excellent work.

Wonderful life

Life is wonderful, abundant, filled with beauty and joy. There is simply no way to deny that. Certainly there is tragedy in this world. And yet in order to even grasp the concept of tragedy, you must start with the assumption that life is very much worth living.

Even the disappointments point out the potential goodness of life. Because every disappointment is the result of knowing that life can indeed be better, that the positive possibilities are very much there.

It is an undeniable reality that this day has magnificent possibilities. When you can see those possibilities, and focus upon them, and follow where they lead, you’ll bring them to life.

Yes, things could be better than they are at the moment. And you are blessed with the ability to make them better. This very day is the day to do it.

— Ralph Marston
