Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Every day an opportunity

Even in the worst situation, you can bring your A game. Even when every other person is careless, apathetic, incompetent, rude, and demanding, you don’t have to be any of those things.

In a world that is far from perfect, you can live every day with excellence. In situations that are unfair and unjust, you can move confidently forward with the utmost integrity.

You can accept this moment just the way it is, with all its flaws and frustrations. Then, independent of the circumstances, you can choose your own most positive and empowering perspective.

You can be informed and enlightened by what’s happening around you, without letting it get you down. Indeed, the more difficult other people become, the more inspired you can be to offer respect, reason, competence and courtesy.

Remind yourself that every day is an opportunity, regardless of the weather, the economy, political wrangling and social pressures. Every day is your opportunity to make honest, honorable progress.

Fix your awareness on worthy goals, and don’t let the noise of the moment dissuade you. This is when you can give your best to life.
