Your thoughts

What if all you could do was think? What if it was completely impossible for you to take any kind of action? Even if you were to think great thoughts, they would be worthless because they would be stuck forever in your mind.

If you are alive enough to read these words, then you have the ability to do more than think. Thinking is vital, yet it is not enough. To make a meaningful difference, thoughts and ideas must be expressed by actions, must be tested and revised by actions, must be communicated and built upon by actions.

How hopelessly frustrating it would be, if we could do nothing but think. Yet how often do we consign ourselves by own will -- or lack thereof -- to that very predicament?

Every day, there are thoughts and ideas playing across your mind which have the potential to grow into greatness. They’re waiting for you to give them life.

— Ralph Marston
