Most people say that as you get old, you have to give things up. I think you get old because you give things up.

Go with what is

Go with what is. Waiting or wishing for things to be different, just wastes time.

Start where you are. Your destination can be whatever you choose, yet your starting point must be the precise place where you are.

Use what you have. Whatever you have is enough to get going, so acknowledge and respect its value, and make full use of it.

Act in this moment. Resist the urge to put anything off until someday, because you deserve to begin making good things happen right now.

Aim for perfection, but don’t demand it as a prerequisite. Envision excellence, and start your way to it not from some idealized situation but from here and now.

From the reality of now, anything is possible, so embrace that reality fully. And utilize it to do great things.

— Ralph Marston
