Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect.

Your great fortune

You are so very fortunate. You are alive and free to create value with your thoughts and actions. You are aware, and able to adapt effectively when conditions change. You live in a world where even the most difficult circumstances can bring great opportunities.

Perhaps you don’t feel so fortunate today. Perhaps events have not gone your way, maybe not for a long time.

Yet all that disappointment, including any disappointment with yourself, is now in the past. The minute you let it go, it is gone. And you are left with the opportunity to move forward, guided by the experience you’ve so dearly earned. What greater fortune than this could you ever have?

See your great fortune in this moment and run eagerly into its richness. Live fully the life with which you’re so fortunately blessed.

— Ralph Marston
