Change for the better

Don’t let what happened a moment ago diminish what you can do now. Don’t allow a disappointing morning to ruin a perfectly good afternoon.

If momentum is carrying you in the direction you wish to proceed, feed it, nurture it, keep it strong. Yet as soon as momentum begins to work against you, let it go.

Your knowledge, experience, and expertise can be highly useful. But don’t become so smug in what you already know that you’re blinded to other possibilities.

Hold on to what works well, expand it and build on it. Be also ready and willing to change for the better.

This month holds opportunities that didn’t exist last month. Today is your chance to make a clean break from yesterday’s painful mistakes.

In any given moment, the direction of your life is up to you. Stay alert to the changes around you and within you, so you’re always able to choose the best way forward.

— Ralph Marston
