If you want things to be different, perhaps the answer is to become different yourself.

The best there can be

It is by giving of yourself that you fully understand and appreciate how very much you have available to give. It is by making a small difference, again and again, that you realize what an enormous difference you can make.

Do you ever feel like hunkering down and hiding from life because it has been so cruel and difficult? In fact, your best choice is the complete opposite.

If life has disappointed you, it’s because you haven’t opened yourself fully to its wonder and richness. When life is pushing hard against you, it’s because you’ve been holding back.

The external disappointments are possible only because there is beautiful and worthwhile and meaningful internal value. Let that value freely flow out from you, and delight in the experience as it colors your world in a more positive light.

Life’s goodness is made possible by your vision of that goodness. Your dreams are made real by your commitment to them.

Give the best that you have. And you’ll experience the best there can be.

— Ralph Marston
