Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.

Fresh new moment

Failure persists only when you continue to allow it. Success remains only when you continue to support it.

What happened yesterday, last week, ten years ago is not what matters. What you do today, right now, where you are, with what you have, is what counts.

Let previous achievements inspire you, not make you complacent. Let past disappointments fuel your determination rather than your doubt.

This is a fresh new moment with a whole new set of possibilities. Feel the positive power of now, and make it yours.

Build new achievements on top of the old ones. Build new value on top of the desirable as well as the undesirable outcomes of the past.

What matters now is what you’re doing now, for yourself, your world, and all your treasures. Give care, energy, purpose to each fresh new moment, making more and more richness as time goes on.

— Ralph Marston
