The best circumstance

It’s great to be where you are, and it’s great to have what you have. It’s great to know what you know, and it’s great to be who you are.

The opportunity to live a life of joy, meaning, and fulfillment is not somewhere else, or in another time or situation. It is right here, right now.

The best circumstance from which to move forward is not in some distant, idealized future. It is the circumstance where you now find yourself, because that is the circumstance from which you can immediately take your first, powerful step.

If you wait until conditions are perfect, waiting is all you’ll ever do. Stop demanding perfection from the world and start demanding immediate, effective action from yourself.

Merely wishing for things to be different, will just get you more of the same. It is by making good use of what you have, that you’re able to create and attract what you desire.

Your life’s great treasure is not in some alternate place or time or situation. It is yours to be claimed right now with the power of your positive, focused thoughts and efforts.
