Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.

Follow through

The best of intentions are of little use until you follow through on them. The most carefully crafted plans bring value only when they are put into action. There are lots of things you’ve been meaning to do. One look at them all will prove that intentions alone are not enough.

You’ve thought about your intentions, talked about them, dreamed, planned and speculated. Today is your opportunity to follow through. Take action, and the value you’ve been meaning to create will start to become real. Follow through on your most treasured dreams, and you’ll then be in a position to reach even higher.

It feels great to think about all the good things you plan to do. It feels even better, tremendously so, to actually get them done.

Dream and plan, think and talk about all the great things you intend to do. Then follow through, and truly experience the best you can imagine.

— Ralph Marston
