Lord, grant that I may always desire more than I accomplish.

Start here

You cannot move forward from some idealized point in the future that has not yet arrived. If you are to move forward, you must do it from where you are now.

Start from where you are. Though it may not be perfect, it is plenty to get you going.

Make full use of what you already have. Wishing for more, or feeling resentment because you don’t have more, will only waste your precious time.

There’s no guarantee that your actions will be effective. Yet you are certain to not be effective if you take no action at all.

Open yourself to the fullness of your possibilities. Step positively forward using what you have, from where you are right now.

Gently and thankfully accept where you are. And tap into the unique richness that has always been yours.

— Ralph Marston
