In your hands today

Think of how today will look from the perspective of tomorrow. Think of how this month will look from the perspective of next year.

Are there opportunities you will wish you had taken advantage of? Are there efforts you’ll wish you had made or destructive habits you’ll wish you had abandoned?

Today you have a combination of time and resources that you’ll never have again. Today you can envision a better world and actually move toward it.

The quality of your future is in your hands today. That’s a profound opportunity, one you deserve to fully utilize while you can.

Today you’re able to send good and valuable things ahead to tomorrow and beyond. You can give the rest of your life added confidence, satisfaction, effectiveness, and richness.

Imagine yourself looking back on today with gratitude and admiration. Now, do what you can do to make sure that really happens.

— Ralph Marston
