Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.

Brand new ground

It doesn’t matter so much where you are. What matters is where you think you are, how you see yourself.

Where you’ve been can be interesting, inspiring and highly instructive. What’s much more relevant, though, is where you’re headed.

The past is finished, sealed into history, unchangeable. Put its victories, shortcomings, assumptions behind you.

Give yourself the extreme advantage of a positive, empowering attitude today, here and now. Whatever you did or failed to do, or thought or said before, now you have brand new ground to cover.

Wrap yourself around the fresh new opportunity that is right now. Give your best efforts, your highest values, your most fervent energy to the moment you’re now living.

Acknowledge that this time right now is on track to be the most successful time you’ve ever known. And everything you have, everything you are, will push you to make it so.

— Ralph Marston
