There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.

Flow and focus

To accomplish anything, requires focus. The more highly focused, the more spectacular the accomplishment. Yet we must be careful not to confuse focus with narrow mindedness. We must indeed stay focused, and we must also be aware of, open to, and accepting of the opportunities which come our way.

Opportunity rarely comes in the form we expect and plan for. The challenge of successful living, is to gather the many and varied opportunities which come to us on a daily basis, and direct them toward the objectives we have defined. To do that, requires discipline, confidence, belief and commitment. On a continual basis.

Life will flow your way if you let it. This is not a magical, mystical notion, but rather a very practical concept. The “raw material” for success comes in each moment of living. Spend those moments, and their accompanying opportunities, toward some definite purpose, and you’ll accomplish it. Life is always flowing. Jump in and swim along.

— Ralph Marston
