Use what you have

If you have a whole lot, use what you have. If you have very little, use what you have.

When you have plenty of time, make full use of it. When you have very little time, make full use of it.

Whether you have a little or a lot, or somewhere in between, use what you have. Whether it’s top-notch or bottom-tier, make good use of what you have.

Wishing for a different starting point won’t carry you forward. Instead, go with what you’ve got and work to make it into what you want.

Rather than getting caught up in what you have or don’t have, or the quality or quantity, zero in on what you can do. Whatever the situation, use it to follow your purpose, to express your values, to support and expand what you love.

Center your awareness and your energy around the main issue, which is always this. What good, useful, meaningful things will you do with what you have?

— Ralph Marston
