Make it better

If you’re not satisfied with what is, then you need to get busy and visualize what can be. Replacing or improving the undesirable is much more effective than just rejecting it. Being for something works infinitely better than just complaining.

Rather than waste your time and effort on useless complaints, invest yourself in improving the situation. Moving forward will get you much farther than moving against.

There are those who complain, who take pride in being a victim. And then there are those who see the enormous opportunity that comes from making a situation better. Which approach makes the most sense to you?

If there’s something you don’t like, make it better. It’s not that big of a step from seeing something as undesirable and visualizing how it can be better. Put some effort behind your vision. Don’t just stand there complaining. Make it better!

— Ralph Marston
