The person who starts out simply with the idea of getting rich won't succeed; you must have a larger ambition.

Your choice

Do you want to be miserable today? If so, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for making yourself so.

Or would you prefer to be joyful and effective throughout the entire day? If so, then you’ll find an opportunity for such in each and every moment.

Being miserable is a choice. When you make that choice, all sorts of things will come your way to reinforce what you have chosen.

Being positive, joyful and effective is a better choice. And when you make that choice, events and circumstances will follow right along.

Your perspective and attitude are what give meaning to the moments of life that come your way. Choose, then, to give those moments a positive, purposeful meaning.

Choose joy, choose life, choose fulfillment, purpose and effective effort. And see how great it can make your day.

— Ralph Marston
