Practice living well

What you do often, you increasingly do with more skill and effectiveness. The good things you do often, become valuable parts of you.

Look for opportunities to take a positive view of life, and seize those opportunities. Embrace situations in which you can be more purposeful, more disciplined, more thoughtful and compassionate.

Ingrain yourself with habits and assumptions that serve to lift your whole world higher. Develop an ever-present muscle memory for the thoughts and actions that lead to increasing levels of achievement and fulfillment.

In large and small moments, in large and small matters, hold true to your values. Those values are strengthened by living them consistently.

The opportunity you have today is not merely to live a good, productive, meaningful day. It is an opportunity to further instill goodness, effectiveness, and purpose into your whole future.

You will become better and better at whatever you practice. Take full advantage of every chance you have to practice living well, and continue improving your ability to make life great.
