Start strong

Start each day the way you want to live it. Your thoughts and actions in the first moments have a strong influence on how the rest of the day goes.

Choose a great attitude, a powerful perspective, a meaningful purpose, and step boldly forward. Get the day off to a positive start that can build into a tenacious momentum.

As the day unfolds, hold fast to your intentions. You’ve decided how to live this day, so follow through with energy, enthusiasm, determination.

With your actions, show life how you want it to go. With your persistence, show yourself how purposeful and committed you can be.

Make good use of your ability to adapt to changing conditions. At the same time, refuse to be thrown off track by meaningless distractions.

Start strong, with a positive purpose that will last the whole day. Build on that strength, hold steady to your purpose, and finish the day stronger than ever.

— Ralph Marston
