Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.

The possibility is there

In a tiny seed is the possibility for an entire forest. If that possibility is to become reality, the seed must be planted in fertile ground. Then it must be nurtured and nourished, day after day.

Your greatest possibilities are much the same. They can become grand and glorious achievements, or they can become nothing at all. It depends completely on the care and nourishment they receive.

Just as a seed needs sunlight, water, nutrients and a firm ground, your possibilities require time, effort, commitment, belief, focus and discipline on a daily basis, so that they may grow to their full potential. Great achievements cannot be built from feeble materials. To fulfill your possibilities requires the best you can be. Every day is important. Every moment makes a difference.

With each thought you think, each action you take, each moment you live, you have the opportunity to either nourish your possibilities, or feed your regrets. Right now is no exception. A grand achievement depends on what you do with this very day.

— Ralph Marston
