Life is a matter of luck, and the odds in favor of success are in no way enhanced by extreme caution.

Dissatisfaction

Are you always wishing you were somewhere else? Well, for the moment you’re not, so your best choice is to make the most of where you are.

Do you wish you had more money, resources, time, connections or experience? The way to get those things you don’t yet have is to make full use of what you do have.

Do you fear what you’re doing is causing you to miss out on something better? Remind yourself you’re doing what you’re doing because of the choices you’ve made, and honor those choices.

Wishing for something better takes time and energy away from actually creating something better. Stop wishing and start creating.

Pay attention to your feelings, but don’t let them destroy your effectiveness. Listen to your desires, devise a realistic plan to get where you want to be, and work that plan.

Feel your dissatisfaction, and take positive energy from it. Transform that energy into focused effort, and push your life where you want it to go.

— Ralph Marston
