The courage to live

You have plenty of things to worry about. And yet, worrying won’t accomplish anything positive.

Though life has many actual and potential difficulties, those difficulties are easily outnumbered by the positive possibilities. You have the courage to live, fully and from the heart, and to continue bringing those positive possibilities to life.

Every moment is precious, so give each moment the respect and attention it deserves. You certainly don’t want to waste your time being resentful or fearful about other times.

You have so very much to give to life, so put your focus on being your most positive and most effective self. Use your energy to create maximum value and meaning out of every day.

Life has its daunting challenges, and you absolutely have the courage to face every one. The more you make use of that courage, the more invincible it becomes.

Your courage to live has brought you here. Use it now, and again and again, and bring more great value to life.

— Ralph Marston
