Capability for achievement

Every past experience has given you something of value. Every new experience will do the same.

The triumphs, setbacks, delays, surprises, frustrations have built your character. Now the building continues.

Instead of wishing your situation were different, find what it has to offer you. See what new strength, wisdom, skill, insight you can gain from going through it.

Circumstances that block your progress force you to develop new, more effective strategies for making progress. Experiences that push you back give rise to fresh determination within you to push forward.

Not only is there a way to get beyond each obstacle. In finding that way, in working through it, you add to your capability for achievement.

Whatever the circumstance, whatever the experience, involve yourself in it fully, with the highest of expectations. You have great progress to make, and right where you are is where you can make it.

— Ralph Marston
