Nourish the seed of greatness

How can you possibly expect to find joy and fulfillment in this day, this moment, this life, if you do not give to it your very best?

In each and every person is a special seed of greatness. When that unique seed takes root and begins to flourish, what a grand thing it can be!

If someone gave you a check for one million dollars, would you deposit it in your bank account? Of course you would. You wouldn’t destroy it, or forget about it, or put it away in the file cabinet. Your talents, abilities, interests, passions and all the other things that make you uniquely you, are worth far more than any amount of money. What a shame it would be if they were not fully used.

You have your own special gifts. Bring them out, make the most of them, and they will fill your life with abundance. Live the life that is you. Do the things that your heart is calling you to do. Find a way. Refuse to settle for a lesser rendition of life.

Make the most of what you have, give the best that you can give. Life can be magnificent when you choose to truly participate.

— Ralph Marston
