You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.

Make it a great day

Today you have another opportunity to enrich your life. You can choose to just get through the day, or you can choose to make today count.

Start by counting your blessings. Appreciate the people in you life. Be thankful for the experience you’ve had, and the things you have learned. And if there’s someone you’ve neglected to say “thank you” to, today would be a great day to do it.

Then, look for ways to make a difference. In your work, in your family, in your community, with your friends, and with perfect strangers. Resolve to do something today that will make the world a better place.

Finally, do something for yourself. Take the first step toward something you’ve always wanted to do. If you keep putting it off, it will never happen. But if you take the first step today, and then another one tomorrow, and the next day, and the next, you’ll reach your dream.

It all starts today. Stand up, step forward, and make it a great one.

— Ralph Marston
