I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity, an obligation; every possession, a duty.

Powerful combination

Be thankful for what you’ve done, learn from it, and use what you now know to move forward. Regretting and second-guessing your past actions will just hold you back, so quit beating yourself up and start pushing yourself ahead.

Though your past hasn’t been perfect, it has been successful in many ways. For what you’ve done in the past has provided you with the opportunities you now have in the present.

In a very real sense, you are more knowledgeable, more capable, more experienced and more inspired right now than ever before. You are now here, ready to make good, meaningful use of all that.

Now, you have the opportunity to transform past disappointments into future successes. Take whatever has happened, and choose for it to serve you well going forward.

This is not the time to rest on your previous achievements or to be demoralized by your past mistakes. This is the time to gather it all into a positive forward momentum.

This is a new moment and you are the best you’ve ever been. Transform that powerful combination into truly valuable results.

— Ralph Marston
