Creativity comes from trust. Trust your instincts. And never hope more than you work.

Make new progress

After disappointment, take positive action. After success and achievement, take positive action.

What matters now is not what has already happened. What matters now is that you can focus your energy, your awareness to make new progress.

Discouragement is never the best choice, and neither is complacency. Whether you’ve failed miserably or succeeded spectacularly, don’t keep yourself stuck there.

This new moment glimmers with fresh potential and opportunities never seen before. Take up the unique challenge that is now, and make new progress.

Don’t let your ego lock you into a sad, small box where it’s all about you and what you’ve already done. Utilize your past not as a place of refuge, but as a springboard from which to jump into new levels of effectiveness.

The rewards and tokens of achievement are nice, yet you never stop longing for the act of achievement. Go ahead, satisfy that longing, for now is when.

— Ralph Marston
