What you really want

What is it you really want? Do you want to sit around doing nothing, or do you want to make a difference?

Do you want to be trapped by the empty comfort and convenience of self-indulgence? Or do you want to have something to show for your life?

Do you want to sit on a lofty, lonely perch, looking down on others with disdain? Or do you want the profound satisfaction of joining in to make life better for all the people around you?

Do you want everything done for you, without having to learn, think, decide or commit? Or would you prefer to grow in wisdom, confidence, skill and competence by taking full responsibility for life?

Your life is filled with so much promise and possibility. You can transform it all into deep regret, or into beautiful, meaningful achievement.

Each moment when choosing how to proceed, remember this. Your life is what you make it, so make it into what you really want.

— Ralph Marston
