Faith in the future

Banish all thoughts of what you lack. Concentrate on making effective use of all you have.

Don’t deplete time and energy wishing for things to be different. Take hold of the situation as it is, and push it in a positive direction.

Complaints, resentments, and despair get you nowhere. Intention and action can take you anywhere.

Circumstances are messy, life is not fair, people are uncooperative and inconsiderate. Look past all that, and see the positive possibilities.

Bit by bit, the whole world is lifted by people who have faith in the future, and who act on that faith. Have faith in the future not because of sappy wishful thinking, but because of what you can do.

Activate your strength, now, today, and act in the direction of your best possibilities. Deal with life as it is, and work to transform it into your highest vision of what life can be.

— Ralph Marston
