Give this day a purpose

This day will soon end, yet there’s a way to always preserve the value that it offers. Give this day a purpose, and make use of this day to fulfill that purpose.

With no purpose, the hours will slip by and the unique abundance of this day will quickly be gone forever. With no purpose, this day is nothing more than a meaningless span of time to be endured.

With a clear and meaningful purpose, however, this day can be transformed into a beautiful and lasting treasure. Instead of a day that will soon be forgotten, you can make it into a day that will always be remembered.

A purpose for this day will give you your very own pathway for accomplishment. A purpose for this day will help you to move past the meaningless distractions and to recover quickly from the painful setbacks.

This day is a unique moment in time. Make the most of it by focusing its special beauty and value in a meaningful and positive direction.

Give this day a purpose, and you give your life a lasting gift. Give this day a purpose, and you can add real value to your world.

— Ralph Marston
