If we had no faults, we should not take pleasure in noting those of others.

You have the power

You have the power to surprise someone with a sincere act of kindness that’s totally unexpected and completely delightful. You have the power to give a helping hand and an encouraging word to those who need it most.

You have the power to set your sights on a goal and then do what is necessary to reach it. You have the power to take an ordinary moment and give it extraordinary value.

You have the power to forgive. You have the power to appreciate.

You have the power to express yourself and you have the power to listen. You have the power to teach and you have the power to learn.

You have the power to look at a problem and to find within it a positive opportunity. You have the power to see what’s wrong with a situation and to take the steps that will make it right.

At the end of this day, your world will not be the same place that it was when the day began. For you always have the power to make a positive difference.

— Ralph Marston
