Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.

Spend some time with yourself

There’s someone in your life who can be very valuable to you. Someone who can offer you excellent advice. Someone who understands you. Someone with whom you can easily communicate. That person is YOU.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t devote very much time to being with ourselves. We’re too busy with the pressing day-to-day concerns of life. We’re too busy worried about what other people want, or think, or do.

Many people never realize their greatness because they get sidetracked by life. They forget about their dreams. Don’t let this happen to you. Get in the habit of spending quality time with yourself on a daily basis. Remind yourself of your purpose in life, of your dreams and ambitions.

Listen to your own thoughts. Explore your feelings. Indulge your ideas and your fantasies.

You are your greatest asset. There’s a wonderful, unique person inside of you. Someone who has many things to offer the world. Get to know yourself. Become the person you were meant to be.

— Ralph Marston
