A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.

Just right

You’re not too old, too young, too rich, too poor, too big or too small, too outgoing or too shy, too ambitious or too lazy. You’re you, and you are just right.

You’ve learned from what you’ve done and from the consequences you’ve experienced, and now you’re ready to move forward with that accumulation of wisdom. Instead of judging what and where you’ve been, put your focus on visualizing what you can now do.

Don’t get caught up in deciding whether you have too much or too little. Simply decide what the best next step is, and take it.

If you’re constantly comparing yourself with others, you’re missing the point. You are who you are, and there’s enormous value in that, and it’s time to give your own special gifts to life.

Find great delight in fellowship with others, but don’t feel like you have to imitate them. The best thing you have to offer is you, so let go of the pretenses and worries and just have fun being yourself.

You are perfectly positioned to have a positive and unique impact on the world. So instead of fretting about being too much of this or that, just accept the way you are at this moment in time and do something wonderful with it all.

— Ralph Marston
