Something in return

Avoiding action, avoiding commitment, does not enable you to avoid suffering. It just makes the suffering meaningless, and thus far worse.

This day will cost you twenty four hours of your precious life. Make sure you get something of real value in exchange.

You have great potential, to the point that it could be considered magical. Yet for that magic to arise, it must be applied toward a specific and meaningful purpose.

If your potential is hidden away and never used it is quite literally of no use. Any option, skill, or ability that’s not ever exercised might as well not exist.

Moving forward with meaningful purpose does not put you or your potential at any greater risk of loss or hardship. It empowers you to create value and fulfillment out of the risk that is already built into life.

One way or another you’re going to pay the price for each moment, for every year. Live your life so as to experience true meaning and fulfillment in return.

— Ralph Marston
