Yours for the doing

You can wait for things to get better. You can hope for things to get better. You can wish for your situation to improve, for your problems to be magically solved. You can come up with a lot of excuses for not taking action. You can come up with a long list of people to blame. You can desperately believe the empty promises of those who say they’ll make it all better for you.

Or you can get busy and make things happen. It’s your choice. You can either make yourself vulnerable or you can make yourself valuable. You can choose to be a victim or you can decide to be a victor.

Your life is not something that happens to you. The life you experience is a direct result of the way you choose to experience it in every moment. It can be full of pain and despair or it can be filled with joy and accomplishment.

Today is your opportunity to live life on your own terms. You are unique. You are worthy. You are able. You can create greatness in your own life through the way you spend each precious moment. You can. It is yours for the doing, right here and now.

— Ralph Marston
