Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not.

Make some progress

Don’t let what you cannot do get in the way of what you can do. Just get busy, do your best at what you’re able to do, and make a positive difference.

If you focus on all the negative factors that you cannot control, the only thing you’ll get is frustration. Instead, put your thoughts, efforts and energy into the many good and valuable things you can do.

When you feel overwhelmed by your situation, the answer is not to give up. The answer is to get going.

Make some decisions, do some work, and get some meaningful accomplishments completed. Experience how much better it feels to make some progress.

There will always be challenges and distractions. But you can always make the choice to make progress anyway.

Today is your opportunity to end up ahead of where you started. Use this moment, and every moment, to make some progress, and you’ll be making life better and better for yourself and your world.

— Ralph Marston
