Having enough

Don’t be complacent but do be content. Don’t stop making a difference but do let go of the need to constantly strive for more.

Achievement is good, but it’s not what makes you good. Before you ever formulated your first goal, you had unique value.

Your efforts enable you to express, expand, and offer that value to others. Those efforts are more effective when they come from a place of contentment and confidence rather than from need and anxiety.

Though there’s more you will do, you can allow what you’ve done to be enough. Experience the deep, abiding peacefulness of allowing what you have and who you are to be enough.

From that place of peace you can generate much new value in your own life and in the lives of others. And you can do it without being burdened by the need to prove anything.

Give yourself the richness of having enough. Be your best by not needing to be anything more than you already are.

— Ralph Marston
