Do what you can do

How do you move forward when you’re gripped by fear? Focus on doing what you can do.

What’s your best response when you’re overwhelmed by events beyond your control? Focus on doing what you can do.

Direct your attention and your efforts where they will actually accomplish something. Although whatever you can do may seem small, it is not nothing.

Do what you can do, for it is a start, and that start can provide positive momentum. Take the actions you’re in position to take, make the difference you’re able to make.

Don’t waste your energy wishing for powers you don’t have. Use the significant skills you do have.

Do what you can do, and you can work yourself toward being able to do even more. Do what you can do, and step by step you’ll get yourself moving ahead.

— Ralph Marston
