Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.

Make the best of today

Today is a new day. Make the best of it. Don’t fill it with complaints or regrets. Break the cycle and use today to accomplish something.

Is there a problem that’s been hounding you? Start taking steps to solve it. Pretending like it’s not there won’t make it go away. Start working on it today. Is there a project you’ve been meaning to start? Begin it today. Make a good start, and make the commitment to work on it every day until it is finished. There will always be a good excuse not to, but excuses don’t bring any fulfillment to your life. Just do it.

What is the best thing you can do with this day of your life? How can you use today to bring more value and fulfillment to yourself and to others? Each moment is an opportunity to live and to give. Make it count.

— Ralph Marston
