Give your best

This day exists so you can give new richness to life. Ingrained deep within you is the desire to matter, to make a difference, and now is when you can.

What gives you fulfillment is what you give yourself to. What brings your life lasting treasure is all the good work you do to create, support, encourage, to offer kindness, to give hope.

The possibilities exist so you can savor the experience of bringing them to life. The challenges exist so you can work your way through them, lifting the world a little higher.

Countless circumstances, distractions, fears will tempt you to give less than your best. Pay no heed to those temptations, for they will only lead you to regret.

Don’t leave yourself stuck at the end of this day with bitter thoughts of what could have been. Give your best to every hour, every opportunity, every encounter, every situation.

Give your best, and discover each time how much better it makes your life. Give your best, for deep inside you know that is what you are here to do.

— Ralph Marston
