Wake up rich

When you worry about what you don’t have, it is a waste of what you do have. You already have everything you need to be the person you are. Everything you’ve accomplished, all that you’ve experienced, all that you are right now, has come from what you already have.

Life is rich indeed, and it is already yours. Focus on what you can do with it. Seek out ways in which you can make a real, substantial difference. Rather than worrying about what you don’t have, make the highest and best use of what you do have. It has been enough to bring you this far. And the more you value what you have, the more useful it will be.

The only thing stopping you from making the most of your life, is you. You already have what it takes. There is a fortune inside of you, waiting to be mined. Put it to use today. You can wake up rich tomorrow, and grow wealthier every day.

— Ralph Marston
