Make a difference

The happiest moments are those spent spreading happiness to others. Real and lasting wealth comes from providing value to others, from making yourself indispensable to the world.

Your greatest opportunity is to make a difference in your own special way. Your most promising possibility is to give something of yourself to those around you.

As you go through this day, look for ways to create real and lasting value for the world in which you live. Make this day better because you were here.

No matter what your business or profession may be, the greatest opportunities and the highest rewards go to those who take it upon themselves to create value. And the amazing thing is, there’s almost no competition. When the vast majority is focused on taking and getting, those who sincerely desire to create and produce shine even more brilliantly by comparison.

Do yourself a big favor. Make a difference in your world.

— Ralph Marston
