How much higher

By doing what you must do, you learn what you can do. By learning what you can do, you raise your expectations.

Get out and participate in life. Take on challenges and make things happen.

The only way to know for sure what you’re capable of doing, is to get busy and put your abilities to the test. When you do, you’ll discover new and valuable skills, interests and passions that can take you far.

It’s comfortable to stick with what you know. Yet the time will come when just doing what you already know you can do won’t be sufficient.

Of course you’ll make some mistakes and experience some setbacks out at the edges of your abilities. The thing is, even those setbacks can bring you valuable experience.

You are capable of so much more than you know. Jump into life and enjoy finding out how very much higher you can soar.

— Ralph Marston
