The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person's determination.

Use this moment

Waiting for the perfect time will never bring it about. The sooner you get started, the more you’ll get accomplished. Is there something you’ve been putting off? Why let another valuable day go by? Begin right now to make it happen. There is always something you can do. There is a first step that you can take right now. Take that step, and then take the next step. Work steadily and consistently toward the goal.

Circumstances will never be ideal, but that doesn’t really matter. You can achieve whatever you desire no matter what the circumstances may be. Your actions and your level of commitment have far more influence than mere circumstances.

The choice you have is this. You can wait for the world to change, or you can be the one to change it. Indeed, the world will change no matter what you do. Yet the more influence you have on that change, the better you’ll like the results.

Excuses are available to you in abundance, but of what value are they? Forget the excuses. Forget about waiting for the perfect moment. Now is the time to get started. Use this moment and each following moment wisely, and you’ll get precisely where you wish to go.
