Shining alternative

Every day you run into carelessness and incompetence. Rather than bemoan that sad state of affairs, provide life with a shining alternative.

Why should you care when other people don’t care? Because if no one cares then everyone loses.

One big reason for all the carelessness and incompetence is a lack of inspiration. You can generate that inspiration by serving as a positive example.

Life is markedly more enjoyable and fulfilling when you’re committed to excellence. Claim that satisfaction for yourself while also showing others how good it can be.

Someone has to be the person who does what is right, what is good, and caring and meaningfully excellent. Be that person, cheerfully, generously, without judgment.

Show the world how good life can be when you’re purposeful, diligent, and competent. And you’ll spread that goodness to all those around you.

— Ralph Marston
