Talent without genius isn't much, but genius without talent is nothing whatsoever.

You’re better

You’re better than frustration. You’re better than procrastination.

You’re better than making excuses. You’re better than taking shortcuts.

You’re better than you were yesterday. You’re better than all the situations and choices that used to pull you down and hold you back.

You’re better because of every moment you’ve lived. You’re better because of the mistakes you’ve made and all you’ve learned from those mistakes.

Today your choices can be better than before. Today your results can be better than ever.

Whatever you’ve been through, now you’re better. See what an amazing opportunity that is, and put it to good use.

— Ralph Marston
