There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.

No regrets

Effort is inconvenient, uncomfortable, time consuming. But regret is much worse.

You can make the effort now, get it done, get it over with. Or you can endure the regret later, when it’s too late, with nothing you can do to rid yourself of that regret.

Today you have opportunity. But the opportunity will soon expire, and you wouldn’t want to miss it.

Today, with your focused, purposeful effort, you can transform opportunity into achievement. That’s a whole lot better than letting opportunity degrade into regret.

Seize the opportunity while it’s yours. Make the effort, as demanding as it may be, while the option is available to you.

Make the choice that will make you thankful for years to come. Act now, carry much value forward from this day, and no regrets.

— Ralph Marston
