Don't be afraid to take a big step. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.

Build a life

It’s easy to do nothing, but easy doesn’t really get you much. It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and watch, but there is so very much more you can do.

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Get in the habit of seeking new and meaningful challenges.

Don’t just give lip service to the things that matter most in your life. Invest yourself fully in building and growing and supporting those things with your time, your effort, and your passion.

A life that is easy and predictable is a waste of your best possibilities. Get out there, jump in, get involved and make the commitment to your highest vision of what life can be.

Don’t merely care about what you care about. Do something about what you care about, in a way that is positive, substantive, and makes a lasting difference.

Move beyond observation, curiosity and empty wishes, and do what it takes to manifest your vision and your dreams into magnificent, rock-solid reality. Every moment is your opportunity to build a life that’s rich and full, so take a deep breath, aim for the stars, and make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
