The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

Imagine exactly

The first thing you must do is see your destination. Though it sounds ridiculously obvious, the world is filled with people who are striving to get somewhere they haven’t even fully imagined.

It’s not enough to desire something different, or to want to get away from where you are. You must be specific about what you do want, and where you do seek to be.

Start the day by imagining in great detail what you will achieve. By the end of the day, you’re very likely to have it done.

Don’t waste time complaining or arguing about what is. Don’t drain all your energy worrying about the problems, challenges and pitfalls.

Instead, imagine what can be. Imagine in precise and meaningful detail, and then make it so.

You are, right now, blessed with the near-miraculous power to do great things. Imagine exactly what those things might be, and put that power to work.

— Ralph Marston
