Your moment to act

You’ll be amazed at how much you can get done if you’ll just get busy and do it. You’ll be amazed at how much progress you can make if you’ll just get started and then keep going.

Worrying, blaming, speculating, resenting, second-guessing and regretting won’t get anything accomplished. Action is what makes things happen.

Complaining about how little time you have will take even more time away from you. So just simply accept that time is limited, and make full use of it.

If you wait until conditions are perfect, you’ll be waiting forever. Go ahead with the way things are, with what you have, and get busy creating new value.

You are surrounded by great abundance. Yet in order to benefit from that abundance, you must make positive and diligent use of it.

Stand up straight, take a deep breath, put a smile on your face and get busy making good things happen. This is your moment to act, and to lift up the world.

— Ralph Marston
