Reach for the best

You will accomplish precisely what you decide to accomplish. If you’re unable to decide, or unable to focus your considerable energy in a particular direction, not much is going to happen.

What have you decided to accomplish today? How have you decided to make the best use of the precious moments that make up this day? There’s plenty of time and there are plenty of resources available to you, when you’ve made the clear and resolute decision to get something done.

Even when you avoid making a decision, that’s a decision to stand still and to waste the precious time which you could be using to move yourself forward.

Life is a non-stop adventure when you decide to make it so. You are immersed in possibilities. So grab on to the best of them and make something wonderful with the good things you have. Others have done it, and you can too.

The hours, the days and the years can serve you or they can oppress you. It all depends on what you decide to do with them. Decide to reach for the best, and experience the joy of getting there.

— Ralph Marston
