Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.

The way you choose

You have a purpose, so choose it. You have control, so use it.

What happens to you isn’t the end of the story. What really makes a difference is what you do with it.

Excuses and complaints give you comfort, but little else. Positive intention, commitment, action, discipline and persistence are what create a life of great fulfillment.

You are not your past, you are not your job title, you are not your bank balance or the car you drive or the neighborhood where you live. You are who you choose to be, and the way you choose to act, in this new moment.

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination, so imagine from your deepest, driving purpose. Feel the passion as it wells up within you, and let it energize every part of your life.

Live by choice, not by chance. This irreplaceable moment is now here, so act to make its great value uniquely yours.

— Ralph Marston
