What you care about

What you care about determines precisely where your life will go. The enormous power of your time and your attention will build and strengthen whatever it is you care about most.

Do you care most about making sure you get to see your favorite television show? Then you’ll most certainly succeed in watching the flickering screen as life passes by. Or do you care about making a positive difference in the life of each person you encounter? Then you’ll find a way to do precisely that.

If what you care about most is just getting through the day with as little effort as possible, that is exactly what will happen. If you truly care about getting specific things accomplished, then those things will indeed be done.

What you care about is evidenced not so much by what you say, but by what actions you actually take. Take a look around at the life you’ve fashioned for yourself, and you’ll be able to easily see the things you truly care about.

Pay close attention to, and be aware of, what you care about most. Because that is what will happen for you.

— Ralph Marston
