Whatever you choose

Some people start out with the greatest advantages and end up doing nothing with them. Don’t be one of those.

Others start with nothing, with just about everything going against them, and yet manage to achieve many great things. By all means, be one of those.

What life hands you is a factor, but not the most important one. What matters most is what you do with what you have.

The day doesn’t have to be bright and sunny in order for you to make it beautiful. People don’t have to be friendly or cooperative in order for you to be your best in their presence.

It’s easy to blame a difficult situation on bad luck, or on the misguided intent of others. It’s much better, though, to accept full responsibility for finding positive possibilities and bringing them to fruition.

There’s not much that can stop you, or push you forward, without your participation. No matter what comes your way, you can make of it whatever you choose.

— Ralph Marston
