Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.

Your current situation

Consider that maybe, just maybe, where you are is a pretty good place to be. Maybe what you have to work with, right now, is exactly what you need.

You can get where you want to go from wherever you start. And the only place to start is where you are right now.

If you want to travel to Miami, there’s no point in getting upset about currently being in Dallas instead of in Chicago. Just get on a plane, or on the road, headed to Miami, from wherever you are.

Don’t wish for a different place of origin. Focus on getting to your chosen destination.

There’s nothing to be gained by complaining about what you lack. Instead, put that energy to work making use of what you have.

Embrace the reality of your current situation, right here, right now. Then get busy working your way, step by step, to where you want to be.

— Ralph Marston
