No guarantees

Even when you can’t be certain of what it is, you can be sure that there’s a way forward. Even when there are no guarantees, there are plenty of reasons to be confident.

When the situation is far from perfect, that’s the perfect time to make progress. For when there is much to be desired, there is much that can be accomplished.

Adversity does not prevent or preclude achievement. On the contrary, it is when things are not right that there is the greatest motivation to make improvements.

Stop wishing or waiting for conditions to be perfect. Accept and embrace the situation for what it is, and get busy making positive use of it.

When things go wrong, that’s not the time to complain. It’s the time to innovate and commit to making valuable improvements.

When there’s much that must be done, that’s the very definition of opportunity. Make the effort to make things better, and you can make things great.
