The real, important stuff

If you have to be someone you don’t want to be in order to attain success, is that really success? If you must compromise your values to get what you want, is that really what you want?

What people, ideas, values, passions, interests, places and experiences can you give your unconditional love to? Remind yourself often to focus your awareness, your efforts and your energy on those things.

Life in each moment is a precious opportunity. Give the real, important stuff the attention it deserves.

If you’re getting too stressed out, or frustrated, or cynical, perhaps it’s because you’re too focused on things that fill you with negativity. Step back, think of what truly matters, and put yourself in a more positive mental environment.

You cannot make your life full by putting more and more empty, meaningless things into it. Instead, choose quality, choose substance, and choose to do the things that excite and fulfill the authentic you.

Right now is your sole opportunity to live this day. Live it true to who you are, true to what you believe, and true to all you love.

— Ralph Marston
