Who you are

Who do you think you are? Are you the problems you encountered yesterday, or are you the positive possibilities that exist today?

Are you the limitations that others have convinced you to adopt? Or are you the person who can work your way through whatever obstacles may confront you?

Are you the shortcomings and disappointments you’ve known? Or are you the most magnificent, most treasured dreams you can imagine?

Are you the empty, meaningless pursuits of the materialistic culture that surrounds you? Or are you the deeply held, lasting values you know to be truth?

Who you think you are can make all the difference, in this moment, in your life. Because who you think you are is who you constantly work to more fully become.

Who do you think you are? Choose right now to be the best you can imagine.

— Ralph Marston
