The only thing that hurts more than paying an income tax is not having to pay an income tax.

Here and now

You know what needs to be done and you know you are capable of doing it. Now is the time to get moving. Though there are distractions all around, and plenty of excuses to be found for waiting until later, putting it off will only make it more difficult. Though there are problems and risks, and lots of things that can go wrong, the biggest risk is failing to do what needs to be done.

Though it can be a bit uncomfortable to step forward into new and unknown territory, it would be far more painful to live with the regret of not having done so. The opportunity to live, to take action, to make things happen, to make a difference is here today in this very moment.

Take hold of that opportunity and take hold of the enormous value it offers. Today, with your thoughts and your actions, with your discipline and commitment, you can add positive value to your life and your world that will stay with you always.

There is one day in your life that can make all the difference in the world. And that day is today, because it’s the one that is here and now for you to live.

— Ralph Marston
