Add to it

Be thankful for your most recent achievement. But don’t let yourself become too impressed with it.

Celebrate the victories, enjoy the good times, but don’t let the celebrations dominate your life. You have much more good work to be done.

Find great joy in each moment without allowing that joy to become a permanent refuge. Instead, let it be an inspiration, a challenge, to create new goodness.

The more progress you make, the bigger is your temptation to grow complacent. Don’t give in to that temptation.

Remind yourself that the advances you’ve made have created opportunities to do even more. The good work you’ve done is calling upon you to add to it.

You’re at your best when you’re making a difference. With gratitude, with joy, with positive purpose, keep up the good work.

— Ralph Marston
