Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Live richly

Every day is filled with opportunities for richness. To see those opportunities, all you need to do is look around with an open heart and an open mind.

There are places you pass quickly by every day without even noticing. Take the time to stop and explore some of them, and you’ll find them filled with wondrous treasures.

There are people in your life whom you see all the time but you’ve barely even met. Take the time to get to know them, and you’ll find yourself with some fascinating friends.

There are things that interest you that you’ve never fully explored. Take the time, make the effort to discover and fulfill your passions, and life will take on a new level of meaning.

Living richly has very little to do with how much money you have. Living richly has everything to do with how deeply and sincerely you appreciate the precious blessing that is your life.

Rather than letting the little things get you down, allow the real and meaningful things to lift you up. Make the choice, in each moment, in every situation, to live with richness, because you can.

— Ralph Marston
