You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Act on your care

Saying you care is cheap, easy, and worthless. When you care, then act on your care, live your care.

Give your caring value, give it consequence. Give specific time, commitment, resources, actions and persistence to your caring.

Spend your energy doing what you can do rather than wasting your breath announcing it. If it matters to you, put your effort behind it.

Don’t bother with perfecting your image. Focus on optimizing your positive impact.

Begin each day in gratitude for all you care about. Then turn your attention to the steps you can take to support and to earn all that continuing goodness in your world.

Allow yourself to care deeply and push yourself to live accordingly. Put your caring into action and make all that’s good and meaningful even better.

— Ralph Marston
