Behind every adversity is an opportunity. If you lament over the adversity, you will miss the opportunity.

Your destination

Right this very moment you are on your way somewhere. You are moving steadily toward a specific destination, as a result of the thoughts you are thinking and actions you are taking right now.

What is that destination? Where is it you are busily taking yourself? Is it where you’ve always wanted to go, or is it somewhere you’d rather not even think about?

Look at how you’re spending this day. Consider your plans for tomorrow. All those activities will lead you somewhere. That place will be the place you choose, and your choice will be made by your actions.

Are your actions today making the choice you truly desire? If so, that’s great. If not, that’s no problem, because you’re in a position to change those actions.

Your desires may be strong yet it is your actions, day in and day out, which will bring those desires into reality. They’re yours to use. Let them bring you to the best life you can possibly imagine.

— Ralph Marston
