Vantage point

From people who have difficult problems, innovations are born. From people who are bored and dissatisfied, creativity flowers.

Great accomplishments do not come from people who wait until conditions are perfect. Great accomplishments come from those who are determined to begin working, right here and right now, to make things better.

Even in the deepest adversity, life’s immense value persists and endures. From that adversity, great strength can grow.

It is when times are difficult that you most profoundly realize how great life can be. It is when life’s best possibilities are impossibly far away that you can comprehend their magnificent brilliance.

Life’s burdens provide a unique and powerful vantage point. In the midst of those burdens, not only can you see the way forward, you become fully committed to making the best possibilities real.

From the vantage point of adversity, chart your course to a life that’s richer than anything you’ve yet known. And feel the power as you do indeed make it real.

— Ralph Marston
