This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in.

Foremost expert

There is no other person who is smart enough, or experienced enough, or informed enough or insightful enough to tell you how to live. That’s up to you.

Certainly the advice and guidance of others can be extremely valuable. Yet when it comes to expressing and fulfilling the best of who you are, you are the world’s foremost expert.

It feels good to be praised and it hurts to be criticized. Always keep in mind, though, that those who offer their opinions of you cannot possibly see the whole picture.

Your life is your responsibility. That is simultaneously a sobering obligation and a fantastic opportunity.

Successful living is difficult work and yet you are absolutely qualified to do it. You are worthy and capable of creating and enjoying whatever it is that truly fulfills you.

Make the commitment, do the work, accept the responsibility that is necessary for that fulfillment. Live the outstanding life that is yours to experience.

— Ralph Marston
