Pathway to improvement

You deserve better than what you’ve been giving yourself. You deserve to be more purposeful, more disciplined, more filled with joy and authentic richness.

Every minute of every day is a new opportunity to fully engage with the one-of-a-kind miracle that is your life. Take hold of those opportunities and live them for all they’re worth, for all you’re worth.

Feel each disappointment as it arises, and let it illuminate a pathway to improvement. Experience the satisfactions that come, allowing them to further enlighten and instruct you.

You deserve, and life itself deserves, the best you can be. Seek to improve upon last year, last week, five minutes ago.

Avoid wasting your energy on envy for what others have or resentment about what anyone else is doing. Concentrate on being more skillful, focused, and effective in advancing all you love and treasure.

In everything that happens is a pathway to improvement. See that path, keep yourself on it, and commit yourself to going where it leads.

— Ralph Marston
