Positive progress

Bemoaning your problems will not solve those problems. Put your focus and energy into working through the difficult situation.

When you have a spare moment, don’t waste that moment feeling sorry for yourself or eliciting the sympathy of others. Use it to make some positive progress.

What matters now is not what happened, or how unfair it was, or how much you wish things were different. What matters now is what you do now to move forward.

Today is one big opportunity to take action. Seize that opportunity and continue working on it.

You are stronger than the challenges. The most effective way to exercise that strength is not in one big push, but in sustained effort over time.

Each new moment is your chance to make a new effort, to create positive progress. As you keep going, as a result of your work, problems are solved and goals are achieved.

— Ralph Marston
