Do not believe that possibly you can escape the reward of your action.

The moment you begin

Even though today may be far from perfect, it is the perfect place from which to move positively and powerfully ahead. Even though the timing is not completely ideal, this is indeed the ideal time to begin doing whatever you can to get wherever you desire to go.

The moment you begin to take positive, effective steps toward your goal, you are no longer behind. Because the direction in which you are headed is vastly more significant than where you happen to be.

This is the moment you can begin to live at a higher level of commitment to those things you truly value. You’ve learned from the past what has always held you back and what has always moved you forward, so go with those things you know will move you ahead.

There are challenges, to be sure, and not everything will go the way you planned. But that’s no reason to deny yourself the outstanding opportunity that stands right now in front of you.

You have the power, right this moment, to make this day one of those days that you’ll always look back upon with satisfaction and delight. The day will quickly pass by, regardless of what you do with it, and with a little extra effort you can indeed make it great.

— Ralph Marston
