I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.

A little progress

Right now in this very moment you can make a little bit of progress. There’s something productive and useful you can do to improve your world and your life.

It may not seem like much, and yet it can make a big difference. Because even a little progress is progress in a positive direction, and it’s infinitely better than doing nothing.

You can waste this moment or you can use it. There’s a world of difference between those two simple choices.

Though you may not immediately achieve anything stunning or momentous, still you can achieve right here and right now. And once you’ve achieved, it will feel so good you’ll jump right in and achieve again.

This is your day and this is your life. It’s happening right now, and you can do something wonderful with it.

Give the value of your effort to this moment, and you’ll receive much more value in return. Here is your chance to make a little progress, so do it.
