Be every good thing

Focus not on how old or how young you are. Instead, fill your mind with thoughts of how great life can be at any time.

Think not about how much or how little money you have. Consider the opportunities that are always available for creating true living and lasting value.

Don’t spend time dwelling on the differences between you and others. Look instead at how you can make a positive difference in the lives of those around you.

Don’t become mired in resentment over your shortcomings and limitations. Instead, find new ways to gratefully explore the magnificent possibilities that are open to you.

You can choose the way you relate to what has been and what is now. Choose to move forward with the very best of it all.

Let go of the shallow labels and limiting expectations that you or others may have attached to your life. Today, right now, be every good thing you know you can be.

— Ralph Marston
