Imagine higher

You’re not stuck. You’re just neglecting to make full use of your imagination.

If one strategy fails to bring the desired results, there’s a different strategy that will. Do the work to develop it and implement it.

The world is not set against you. You’re just looking at it from a perspective that’s too narrow.

Step back, look at a bigger part of the picture. You’ll see helpful people, possibilities, resources, concepts and ideas you’ve never seen before.

Imagine viewing the situation from an altitude of thirty thousand feet, or from the surface of the moon. What opportunities would you see from a higher perspective that you’re failing to recognize now?

Imagination is difficult work, and well worth the effort. Put it to use, imagine higher, and do the great things you’re here to do.

— Ralph Marston
