You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.

Envision the best

The task is difficult, but that does not mean it is impossible. The problem is complicated, yet somewhere, somehow, a solution can be crafted.

Though the news can be troubling, it doesn’t mean the world is falling apart. Though any given moment may be unpleasant, even painful, still there is so very much to live for.

Acknowledge the troubles, and then look up from them. Look up, look forward, and see the positive possibilities.

Dare to grab hold of the burdensome aspects of life and move them in a more positive direction. Dare to see life clearly as it is, and to fashion some real progress out of it.

It’s easy to complain, to throw your hands up in despair, to hide away, to become bitter and disenchanted. Yet you actually have far more reason to be hopeful, positive, and enthusiastic about the future.

Dare to have faith in the good things you can do, in the goodness you can inspire, and act on that faith. You create your future from the way you see it, so envision the best and make it so.

— Ralph Marston
