Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.

Embrace the responsibility

You don’t have to prove how good you are. Just be how good you are.

You don’t need anyone else’s permission to live your dreams. Give yourself permission, and inspiration, and a sincere reason, and go for it.

The quality of your life is not determined by what other people choose to think of you. It is determined by what you choose to think and do.

Stop wishing for someone to bail you out, or waiting for someone to give you a break. Give yourself a nudge forward, then get moving and keep moving.

Consider your good fortune at being able to act on your own behalf. Delight in the fact that you are responsible for the way your life unfolds.

Embrace that responsibility and all the good things it makes possible. Live that responsibility, and make your life live up to your very best expectations.

— Ralph Marston
