Twenty four hours

Everyone, no matter how accomplished, successful, wealthy or powerful, has exactly 24 hours in each day. The difference between success and mediocrity is not in the time we get, but rather in what we do with that time.

This time tomorrow, you can be in just about the same place you are today. Or, you can be twenty four hours further along on the road to success. It all depends on how you spend those hours. They will pass, whether you do anything or not.

Right now is a moment filled with opportunity, because right now you can decide to make a difference. You can start right now, to fill the day ahead with positive effort and accomplishment. And tomorrow, when you look back, you’ll be amazed at how far you’ve already come.

— Ralph Marston
