What it takes

You have what it takes to make an ordinary day into a great one that will always be remembered. For what it takes is nothing more than the willingness to live every moment like it will never come again.

You have what it takes to transform small, easily performed actions into great accomplishments. For what it takes is nothing more than the persistence to make one small step, and then another, and another, until the job is done.

You have what it takes to make every moment better than the one before. For what it takes is nothing more than choosing to learn all you can from both the victories and the defeats.

You have what it takes to live a life of meaning and fulfillment. For what it takes is nothing more than committing yourself, in each moment, to what you know is right for you.

You have what it takes to move beyond your fears. For what it takes is the understanding that fear is not there to stop you, but to prepare you.

You have what it takes, right now, this very day. So choose to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
