In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich.

Reach forward

You might not reach your goal today. Yet you can reach a significant part of the way toward it.

You may not make as much progress today as you intend. Yet you will make some valuable progress.

Don’t you dare be discouraged by what you were not able to do. Instead, be inspired by what you have been able to get done, and by what you’re now in a position to achieve.

Even though you’re not able to reach all the way right now, reach. Go ahead, do what you can, now when you have the opportunity.

Get started, continue, make some progress, then do it again and again. Small efforts add up to big results when you repeat them often enough.

Reach forward, work forward and move forward. You’ve made some meaningful progress, and now is your chance to make even more.

— Ralph Marston
