Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.

Starting point

Regardless of how far behind you may be, you always can choose to move forward. Though people and events and circumstances may conspire against you, you can decide to move ahead anyway.

Success depends on your direction, not on your position. No matter where you may be, it is always within your reach, and you can always begin to work for your own special success.

It’s perfectly okay to be where you are. Because from where you are, you can move steadily to wherever you desire to be. Sure, it’s probably not the ideal situation, and yet it is a starting point. It’s the starting point you have, and one from which you most certainly can move forward.

It will happen because you decide to make it happen. It will happen because you’ll do what’s necessary to make it happen. This day, this place, this situation is your starting point. Now is your moment to reach as high as you care to reach. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. Decide for yourself and start moving yourself positively there.

— Ralph Marston
