You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.

Nudge yourself forward

Just because it’s difficult, doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Today is when you can figure out a way.

Even the biggest setback doesn’t mean you have to give up. Take a look at where you now are, and decide what you can now do.

Think of all the things you wish you had done differently. Now is your chance to grant that wish to yourself.

Criticism hurts, whether it’s from yourself or others, and that’s why it can be so helpful. Let it inspire you to be smarter, stronger, more persistent and resilient.

There is one particular action you can take right now to make life better. Take that action without delay, and you’ll empower yourself to take more.

Whatever has been, whatever is now, you can nudge yourself a little bit forward. Do it, keep it up, and let those little nudges combine to greatly improve your world.

— Ralph Marston
