Every individual has a place to fill in the world and is important in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not.

Force for good

Focus on the creation of real value, lasting goodness, kindness, fulfillment, and love. Turn your attention away from the petty, foolish distractions that generate so much empty noise.

Seek to gain wisdom, understanding, and deeper connection with every interaction. Resist the temptation to engage in drama and conflict.

Every other person you come into contact with is unique, and at the same time more similar to you than different. Respect that beautiful, valuable combination of diversity and kinship, and utilize it for the benefit of all.

Fill your mind with thoughts of positive possibilities. Fill your hours with generous and rewarding effort.

You have a deep and abiding interest in the deep and abiding interests of everyone else. What advances life as a whole advances your life as well.

Use this day and every day to live as a force for good. It is your opportunity and your obligation to yourself and to all of which you’re a part.

— Ralph Marston
