Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it.

This time

You’ve been here before. It’s time to stop doing this to yourself.

You know what got you here. You know how much work you’ll have to do to get back on course.

This time you’ll have to do that work again. As you do, consider all the good possibilities you must give up or delay while you correct the situation you’ve gotten yourself into.

You will make things better because you must. Then you’ll have the opportunity and sufficient determination to never make the same unforced error again.

Take that opportunity. Nurture that desperate sense of determination into lasting inspiration, into a permanent improvement in the way you handle your life.

You know where you went wrong and you know you’re never going to let it happen again. That’s a very good thing and it is yours to earn this time, right now.

— Ralph Marston
