Life has taught you

There is so very much that life has taught you. Now is when you can make good and valuable use of the lessons.

All the things you’ve done and experienced have given you great, practical, meaningful wisdom. Now you can live and act more wisely, and more effectively, than ever before.

Life has taught you well, yet it can often be frightening and uncomfortable to apply those lessons. Because if you truly pay heed to what life has taught, you’ll be compelled to move beyond what is comfortable and familiar.

Life has taught you that sticking with what doesn’t work just because it’s what you know, doesn’t work. Life has taught you that avoiding all risk ends up being the riskiest thing you can do.

It’s easy to make excuses and to avoid effort, but life has taught you that kind of approach doesn’t ever end very well. And life has taught you that when you do accept the risk, and take action, and live with integrity, there’s no limit to the great things you can accomplish.

Have the courage and the faith to step forward and live the way life has taught you. You know from experience what can make life great, so take the opportunity, right now, to put those valuable life lessons to good and meaningful use.

— Ralph Marston
