Intentional control

Life can be difficult, no matter how you live it. Don’t make it a hundred times more difficult by living irresponsibly.

Exercise positive, intentional control of your life. Otherwise you’ll be tossed around by random events and frivolous impulses.

Decide precisely who you want to be, where you want to go, what you want to experience. Then focus your energy on making it all happen.

Give yourself the benefit of a plan, for the day, for the month, for the decade. Experience all the great benefits of harnessing your time, energy, and activity for meaningful purpose.

You can do so much more than merely getting by. You can make progress, and then make more progress.

Show yourself how much you value yourself and the life you have. Live it in each moment, in every situation, with discipline and positive purpose.

— Ralph Marston
