When bad things happen

Just when things are the worst, is when you can make the most difference. When everything is going against you, is the best time to take positive action that will get things going for you.

The best cure for discouragement is action. Don’t just sit there feeling sorry for yourself, do something! You got into this situation. You can get yourself out, and move forward to a life of success and achievement. It all starts when you begin to take control of your own destiny. Realize that your actions determine your future.

Haven’t you had enough already? Start working your way out, right now. Some of life’s greatest accomplishments come when positive action is taken in the midst of a discouraging situation.

What can you do today, right now, that will move you forward? Set your sights on the future and do it now.

— Ralph Marston
