Steadfast perspective

The world is noisy. Rise above the noise by keeping yourself focused on what’s most important to you.

Events, opinions, trends threaten always to push you in a confusing, disheartening mishmash of different directions. Avoid that fate by pushing yourself in a meaningful, specific direction.

Keep yourself connected with what you love, what you care about, what you want to build and nurture. Moment to moment, remain grounded by strong purpose, and by your commitment to advance that purpose.

Experience life in all its color and flavor as it streams noisily into your awareness. Yet make sure to give yourself a steadfast perspective from which to experience it all.

At the same time, give yourself something good and useful to do with it all. Enable yourself to extract real value from the drama, the confusion, the energy that sizzles around you.

This is a great and wondrous day to be alive. Give yourself something great and wonderful to do with it.

— Ralph Marston
