Opportunities big and small

You won’t solve all your problems today, but you can take care of one or two of them. You probably won’t get all the way to your destination, but you can definitely make some progress.

Every day offers numerous opportunities to make progress. Make use of as many of them as you can.

Steady, persistent effort may not seem like it’s having much effect at the time you’re doing it. Keep going though, because over time those little steps forward can take you a long, long way.

Right now, there’s a valuable difference you can make. Instead of just letting the next few moments pass by with nothing to show for them, choose to invest them wisely.

Move your world forward a little bit. No one else may even notice, but you will know, and you will benefit, and so will they.

By fully appreciating and utilizing the smaller opportunities, you attract the bigger opportunities into your life. Use what you have, with persistence and faith, and you’ll most surely get wherever you wish to go.

— Ralph Marston
