Practice isn't the thing you do once you're good. It's the thing you do that makes you good.

The effort of fulfillment

The rich abundance of life surrounds you. It is a magnificent blessing and a profound responsibility.

You have access to a continuing stream of value that is life and its countless possibilities. It is up to you to make meaningful use of that value.

No person, no possession, no position can give you fulfillment. That will come only from the way you choose to live.

Life owes you nothing because life already gives you everything. You, through your focus, your priorities and your efforts, are the only one who can transform that abundance into fulfillment.

To hope that someone will do it all for you is to deny yourself the true magnificence of being you. You are absolutely worth the effort of fulfillment, so find joy in making that effort.

The challenges are many, and yet the positive possibilities are endless. Make the commitment, make the effort, and live life at its highest, most fulfilling level.

— Ralph Marston
