The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.

Inside out

The person you are on the outside can never be more successful than the person you are on the inside. Whatever it is you desire for your life, develop it first within yourself.

You can determine, with no limitations, the person you are inside. And as you do, that person comes to life on the outside as well.

Yes, you could take the outer difficulties and internalize them. But then they would soon flow back out from you and manifest on the outside as even greater difficulties.

Instead, reach deep within and connect with the highest positive purpose that is surely there. Nurture and encourage that purpose with your thoughts and actions, no matter what may be going on in the world outside.

As you do, the best of who you are inside will begin to appear on the outside. Your accomplishments will have the power of purpose behind them, making them real and lasting.

Cultivate your very best on the inside. And it will come to life all around you.

— Ralph Marston
