You are capable

You are capable of whatever you wish. No matter how far down you may be, no matter what has happened in your past, you are capable of molding the future in the direction of your dreams.

The world will bombard you with distractions. Quick and easy, empty pleasures will be waiting to ensnare you. Others will scoff at you. Barriers will drop into your pathway. Yet these are ultimately of no consequence when you truly make up your mind to achieve.

The mere fact that you can imagine a better life for yourself is evidence of your ability to achieve that life. You already have your most treasured dreams and desires. They are real and they exist within you. Nurture them, give them the power of your thought, your effort and your commitment. Make them real not only inside of you, but also in the world around you. That is achievement, that is your destiny, and no matter who you are, you can do it.

— Ralph Marston
