The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

This is the day

This is the day you’ve been saving yourself for. This is the day to stop playing it safe. This is the day to be who you have always known you could be. This is the day to go beyond mere planning, to go beyond just thinking about it.

This is the day to live with all the fullness, all the richness you know is possible. This is the day to stop teasing life, and to give yourself fully to the best possibilities.

Being who you truly are, giving all you have to give and fully living each moment, is filled with risk and uncertainty. Yet if you hide away from life, fearing you could lose some part of it, then you never will have it in the first place.

The day has arrived for you to get out there and celebrate the incredible good fortune you have to be here now. Yes, you’ll win some and you’ll lose some. Through it all, however it turns out, you will be doing what you were born to do. And that is to live the unique experience of being you.

— Ralph Marston
