Get out ahead of life

If you feel burdened by having too much to do, choose to do even more. Make it your choice, your genuine intention, and it will no longer be your burden.

When life asks much of you, get out ahead of life and give even more. Put yourself in control by putting yourself into action.

Don’t complain about how bad you have it. Let your actions express how very good you can be.

Commit to an authentic, meaningful purpose and then follow that purpose with joyful persistence. Know specifically where you’re going and you won’t be easily misled.

Take action and you won’t have to live with doubt. Make a difference and you won’t be forced to make excuses.

Opportunity is everywhere, especially when it doesn’t seem to be. Live like you mean it by putting your highest hopes, visions and values into action.

— Ralph Marston
