In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.

A grand opportunity

If you make even a small positive difference today, then you’ll end the day ahead of where you started. If you take even a small step toward the fulfillment of your dreams, then you will have moved today in a positive direction.

The moments will quickly pass, whether you make use of them or not. Choose to fully and lovingly use the time you have, and the passing of time will lift you higher.

You don’t have to solve all the world’s problems in a single day. Yet you can spend the day moving in a positive, productive, creative direction.

If you choose to grow a little big stronger today, then tomorrow you’ll be in a position to expand on that growth. If you choose to make positive progress every time you have the chance, you’ll eventually arrive at exactly where you intend to go.

This day, this moment, is a grand opportunity. For you can use it to make a difference.

What is the best that you can imagine? Today you can truly move yourself toward it.

— Ralph Marston
