Steps available to you

You have ability, you have opportunity, you have resources. Transform them into value.

Your needs will not be met by merely focusing on those needs. To satisfy your needs and desires, you must do what you can do with whatever you have.

You can’t do everything, yet you can do something. Conditions are not perfect, yet they do present you with certain opportunities.

Within the limitations, within the restraints, within the challenges, those very real opportunities exist. Seek to find them, to focus on them, to act on them.

Wishing for things to be easier will only make things harder. So spend your energy on productive action rather than on empty wishes or toxic resentments.

There is a path from here to where you need to be. Take the steps available to you, and put yourself solidly on that path.

— Ralph Marston
