No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.

Extraordinary influence

You have extraordinary influence over your experience of life. Because you decide what to notice, what to care about, what to do.

You can find great inspiration in the smallest of things. You can discover new levels of joy and enrichment in even the most ordinary task.

You can see possibilities that a million people might have passed by and never noticed. You can apply your thoughts, time, and efforts to bring those possibilities to life.

Life is not something that happens to you. Life is something that happens through you.

Your attitude, your preferences, your willingness, your fortitude, all contribute to the life you experience. And if your choices ever fail to serve you well, you can replace them with even better ones.

The days ahead, the years to come, will depend largely on the way your choices make them. Challenge yourself enough, love yourself enough, to make them the best you can imagine.

— Ralph Marston
