From where you are

No matter how far you’ve fallen behind, you can choose at any point to start moving forward. Even though nothing else may be going your way, you can decide to get your thoughts and actions going your way.

Success is a function of your direction and persistence, not your starting point. When you’re ready to start making a positive difference in your own life and in the lives of others, any starting point will do just fine.

You are where you are, so accept and embrace the situation. Then find some valuable and useful aspect of it that you can utilize to get yourself going.

From where you are, you can move in any direction you choose. From where you are, you can eventually reach any destination you are committed to reaching.

It will happen not because of where you’ve already been or what others have told you. It will happen when you decide to make it happen.

Now is when you can make that decision, and take control of your future. From where you are, with your passion to make it happen, anything is possible.
