Live life’s treasure

Find joy in the doing, and not merely in what the doing will bring you. Give your attention and awareness to the moment you’re in, rather than being consumed with where the moment will lead.

Take good care of what is now, and you end up in the best position to meet what will come. Give value to today and the positive difference you make will travel with you through all your tomorrows.

Enjoy being where you are without getting so attached to it that it holds you back. When you are focused on the reality and possibilities of now, worry and regret have no power or meaning.

Be satisfied with how far you’ve come, yet ever anxious to keep going. Live fully in the present while you work to create value that will live long into the future.

You have brought all that you are to this moment. Live this moment in such a way as to express and fulfill the best that is within you.

Joy and fulfillment do not have to wait for the future, and they do not have to become lost in the past. This is your moment to live life’s treasure.

— Ralph Marston
