The richness of today

This day, and all its rich possibilities, will soon be gone. Now is the time to claim the best of those possibilities and transform them into lasting value.

Of all the resources available to you, time is among the very most precious. That’s because there is no limit to the value you can create with your time, and also because once a moment or a day has passed, there’s nothing more you can do with it.

Raw and available abundance is streaming into your life right now in massive quantities. This is your opportunity to mold that abundance into lasting value, so you can benefit from it for a long time to come.

Live this day fully, by applying your effort and focus in meaningful and effective ways. By doing so, you will make the richness of today an enduring part of your life.

Drop your meaningless pretenses and useless worries about the future, and put your energy into living the richness of what is right now. Feel the great opportunity that is in front of you, and make it uniquely yours.

While it is still here, bring today’s richness into your life. And make this day one you can look back upon with satisfaction and immense gratitude.

— Ralph Marston
