And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Positive potential

In fear is the potential for courage. In weakness is the potential for strength.

In ignorance is the potential for wisdom. In frustration is the potential for competence and effectiveness.

Embrace the shortcomings, admit them, understand them. Then get to work flipping them into advantages.

Don’t waste energy wishing or begging for things to be better. Improve the situation by improving yourself and your attitude.

You can face your fears, work to enhance your skills, and learn what you do not know. Your intention, commitment and persistence will transform problems into opportunities.

In every negative situation is positive potential. Do the work and bring it to life.

— Ralph Marston
