Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.

Opportunity in anything

Sometimes you can exercise a great deal of control over where life is going, and other times you get caught up in forces beyond your control. However, you can always control the way you think and feel and respond.

Learn to appreciate the enormous power that comes from being able to frame anything that happens in an empowering light. Experience how it frees you from the grip of fear and anxiety.

It’s great when you can cause events to go your way. And yet even when things don’t go as you wish, that can be just as great.

Because you have the profound and powerful ability to uncover opportunity in anything that happens. Every day, every situation, every twist and turn of life’s road gives you something valuable with which to work.

Imagine what would happen if instead of being upset by the disappointments, you could choose to be encouraged by them. The absolutely wonderful fact is, you can.

This is a day, this is a moment in which you can move forward no matter what. It’s a very powerful place to be.

— Ralph Marston
