Reality check

What must be done is what must be done. Stop avoiding, complaining, procrastinating, and just do it.

The way things are is the way things are. Find the opportunities, address the problems, hold true to your purpose, and do what you must do to move forward.

Wishing for a different set of circumstances won’t get you a different set of circumstances. Instead, transform your wishes into rock-solid intentions, then put forth the efforts to make them happen.

You can do this if you will. You’ve done it before and you can improve on that past performance right now.

Remind yourself of everyone and everything you care about. You’re doing it all not only for yourself, you’re doing it for them.

Feel your power and your possibilities as you make the good choice to clearly and confidently face reality. Now is when you can, and now is when you will.

— Ralph Marston
