Your highest level

A little extra effort can buy you a lot of additional options. Instead of always being hindered by what you must do, put yourself in full control of what you can achieve.

A little more self-discipline and initiative can give you a lot more power over your own destiny. By embracing full responsibility for your own actions, you make those actions much more beneficial and effective.

Avoiding that responsibility, and seeking to take the easy way out, will quickly add to your difficulties. Being less than you can be, and doing less than you know you can do, will cause far more pain than any external challenge ever could.

There’s a reason why you have a burning desire to matter, to make a real difference in the world. It’s an essential part of who you are, of your deepest purpose, to get good and valuable things done.

So use the opportunity of this moment, and of every moment, to live and work and love and enjoy at your highest level. Let your unique value flow forth without holding back.

Live each day with the courage of your own special, beautiful possibilities. Always give your best, for it is your most profound and fulfilling desire to do so.

— Ralph Marston
