Everything you need

Value and appreciate whatever you have and wherever you are, no matter how modest or insignificant it may seem. For what you have is everything you need to get anything you want.

It’s not a matter of how much or how little you have. What truly matters is what you do with it. Even if you have almost nothing else, you have the hours and the moments in this day, and the days that follow. Use them wisely, with focus and discipline, with persistence and determination, and you’ll be moving toward where you want to be.

Look at today as a starting point, and know that there is a very real and very attainable path which leads all the way to your most treasured dreams. The very best thing you can do today is to take the first step along that path.

Though it may be a small step, it is a positive one, a way to begin making use of what you have that will bring you to what you desire. You already have everything you need to take that first step, and once you take it you’ll have what you need to take the next one.

See what you have, see where you can go and with each day you’ll make your way steadily there.

— Ralph Marston
