I don't look to jump over 7-foot bars; I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.

Listen to your own dream

Life is too short to spend it living someone else’s dream. Listen to yourself. Really listen. What will make your life meaningful and fulfilling?

It’s easy to let someone else make all your decisions for you -- when to show up for work, when to go home, what to do with your day, when to go to lunch and for how long, what to wear, how much money you will make, how much vacation time you’ll get. That’s the easy way out.

Reaching for a better life is not easy. It is uncomfortable. It takes courage, determination, commitment and action. Is it worth all that? You bet!

You have one life to live. Do you want to spend that life just getting by? Or do you want to make your own unique contribution to the world? The choice is yours. Life is wonderful and precious. Find what you want out of life and live it all the way.

— Ralph Marston
