Be good to life

Don’t wait for life to be good to you. Be good and useful and valuable to life.

Decide precisely and specifically what would make life great. Then get busy making it happen.

It’s not your fault that life is often so difficult. It is, however, your responsibility to deal with those difficulties that affect your world.

The challenges, unfair situations and injustices do not excuse you from your responsibility to make a difference. In fact, they compel you to act and to create meaningful value.

If you can find things to complain about, then you can also find ways to improve your world. Let go of the need to complain, and work instead on bringing the improvements to life.

As many problems as there are, there are even more positive possibilities. Grab the best of those possibilities, be good to life, and enjoy how good life is for you.

— Ralph Marston
