Enjoy now

You’ll never be happy with what you acquire if you can’t enjoy what you already have. So along with working to climb higher, take plenty of time to appreciate and truly enjoy where you are.

There was a time when you aspired to nothing more than where you are and what you have right now. Well, here you are, so let yourself enjoy the fact that you’ve come this far.

In some ways it’s good that you’re never completely satisfied, for your growing ambitions can give you valuable challenges. Yet it also pays to fully enjoy the places you’ve already reached.

The more you enjoy each day, the more positive energy you’ll have to keep moving ever forward. If you know from experience that you’ll enjoy your dreams when you reach them, you’ll give your very best to the effort.

Acquiring more and more is a poor substitute for fully enjoying and making use of what you already have. Enjoy right here, right now, and delight in the immense blessing that is your life.

— Ralph Marston
