History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.

Look ahead

Look ahead, toward where you’re going, and you’ll be better able to deal with where you are. Stay focused on the goal at the end of the road, and you’ll find a way to move steadily down that road.

Keep looking ahead, and even the difficult steps will seem lighter. Keep your ultimate purpose in mind, and the burdens become that much more bearable.

Look ahead, and the challenges will make you stronger. Look ahead, and your dreams will pull you toward them.

When you’re looking ahead, the distractions won’t be nearly so distracting. Your efforts will gain the immense power of focus when you keep your eyes on where you’re headed.

Your time, your energy, your resources will get used no matter where you’re looking. When you look ahead, you’ll get the highest return for that investment.

Look ahead, toward the place you most want to be. The more you look, the closer you’ll be.

— Ralph Marston
