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

There is a purpose

There is a purpose that defines you. Live true to that purpose, and you bring unstoppable power and persistence to your actions.

There is a purpose that fulfills you. Find and understand that purpose, and you will achieve great and meaningful things.

There is a purpose that is you. But how do you uncover that purpose?

Learn to let go of all the things that ultimately have no lasting meaning. Choose to look at life and to see what you know, rather than what others tell you that you should see.

Look beyond the fleeting, superficial concerns of fame, fortune and fashion. Focus instead on building real and timeless qualities such as value, wisdom and love.

Seek that which is real, that which has substance, and the purpose that is your own will become abundantly clear. Stay connected to that purpose, and experience its unmatched power.

— Ralph Marston
