Make it all count

Grab this moment and make it count. Something you can do right here, right now, will push life forward.

Embrace your situation and make it count. Instead of making judgments about whether it’s good or bad, fortunate or unfortunate, go ahead and do something valuable with it.

You’ve invested the whole of your life to get where you are. Now, your best option is to make it all count.

Transform the energy that comes your way into purposeful action. Take whatever you have, the resources, the circumstances, your skills, knowledge and connections, and make it all count.

Rather than complaining about what is or wishing for what isn’t, focus on creating progress. With your thoughts, your words, your actions and feelings, make it count.

Always you are surrounded by abundance, and always you’re able to do something with it. Take it all in, look in the direction of your highest ideals, and make it all count.

— Ralph Marston
