One good thing

One good thing leads to another. An improvement in one area of your life can quickly cause improvements in other areas as well. When you’re overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, just start anywhere. Start with what you know you can do, where you know you can be effective.

There is something you can do right now to get positive momentum on your side. And once it’s there, that positive momentum can begin to spill over into everything you do.

In the space of the next hour, it’s unrealistic to expect that you’ll accomplish everything your heart desires. Yet when you decide to do so, you can use this next hour, and every hour, to accomplish something positive and meaningful.

With each new accomplishment, your confidence grows stronger. With each new accomplishment, you become more willing to take on even greater challenges that lead to even greater results.

If you want to experience being on top of the world, take a small step upward every chance you get. Those small steps, if only you’ll keep taking them, can quickly boost you to a new level of success and achievement.

— Ralph Marston
