The best direction

Consider for a moment the very best thing that could happen for you today. Then, think about the worst thing that could happen today.

Now, consider this: What can you do right now, and what actions can you take throughout the day that will result in the making best thing happen and keeping the worst thing from happening? Answer that question, and you’ve defined your direction for the day. Success will come when you work consistently toward the things you desire.

Keep in mind that the outcome of this day is mostly up to you. You want the best? Then make the effort that will bring you the best. There are plenty of great things that could happen today. You have the choice and the power to make them happen. Keep your eyes on the prize, and your feet moving toward it.

— Ralph Marston
