Make it better

There is always room for improvement.

No matter who you are, or where you are, life can always be better. Every day that dawns, brings with it the opportunity for growth and improvement. What doesn’t work, can be repaired. What does work, can be made better. What is good, can be made great.

Imagine that you are just a few improvements short of greatness. Then go out and make those improvements! Where you are right now, doesn’t matter nearly as much as where you are going.

In every situation there is opportunity for growth. In every situation, good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant, there is the possibility for improvement. Add value to any circumstance, and you can turn a negative into a positive, or make a positive even better.

The best thing about reaching a goal, is the opportunity it provides to reach even higher. Attain small goals, build on them, and soon anything is possible.

— Ralph Marston
