Out into the world

Go out into the world and make your way through its challenges. Discover your strengths and work to overcome your weaknesses.

You’ll encounter disappointments and then make your way beyond those disappointments. In so doing you learn not to fear the possibility of disappointment.

Look at life with a continually renewed sense of wonder and appreciation for all that is. Choose to see value, positive possibilities, opportunities for achievement, joy, and goodness.

Give of yourself to others, with your time, your presence, your effort and encouragement. Experience over and over again how your genuine generosity brings strength, richness, and connection to life.

Respect yourself, your potential, and all the people around you by being honest. Seek what is real, what is true, what retains its value, not just what is convenient or popular.

Embrace the responsibilities and the opportunities of living a good and consequential life. Go out into the world, day after day, eager to be and to do your best.

— Ralph Marston
