To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive, and the true success is to labour.

The opportunity of right now

Opportunity, when combined with effort, brings achievement. Now is when you have the opportunity and now is when you can make the effort.

Each moment opens up new possibilities for creating value that can remain in your life long after the moment is gone. Now, on this day, in this place, is one such powerful moment.

You could let this day simply pass on by, and take with it all its valuable opportunities. Or, you can get busy and make something of those opportunities.

Sure, you can come up with perfectly reasonable excuses for not taking action. Yes, you can let the disappointments and frustrations stop you.

Or, you can choose to act on the unique, valuable opportunities that are in front of you right now. Before the value of this day passes you by, you can take hold of that value and make it a permanent part of your life.

The opportunities of right now are powerful and valuable, but only if you choose to act on them while they are here. Reach inside, connect solidly with your dreams, let those dreams motivate you to take action, and make the efforts that will bring those dreams to life.

— Ralph Marston
