From overwhelmed to empowered

Do you feel overwhelmed? The way out is to focus on now.

Whatever you failed to do in the past does not matter now. Let go of any thoughts that could draw you into anxiety about the future.

Give your attention to the progress you can make in this moment. Focus your energy on the valuable contributions you can make from where you are, with what you have.

Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you can easily and realistically choose to feel empowered. After all, this moment with all its rich possibilities is open and available to you.

What you can do right now is enough. Confidently take action and see for yourself.

Take a clear, positive, decisive step forward. Choose now to be fully engaged in making progress, and nothing will have the power to overwhelm you.

— Ralph Marston
