You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.

Each moment as it comes

Give less attention to what frustrates you and more attention to what fulfills you. Give less attention to what angers you and more attention to what nourishes you.

Give less time to empty distractions and more time to enriching experiences. Expend less energy seeking approval and more energy creating value.

Embrace the true adventure of navigating a meaningful path through a world filled with challenge, risk, complexity, and beauty. Steer clear of the superficial dramas and all the nonsense that masquerades as sophistication.

Be endlessly thankful for your deftness in recognizing what is possible. Have confidence in your ability to understand what is good, and right, and worth the investment of your attentiveness.

Appreciate the fact that many of the limitations making existence difficult also make existence possible. Keep in mind that there is a whole universe outside your mind, that you must do your best to learn to live in it.

With gratitude, with humility, with purpose, with love, face each moment as it comes. With a devotion to truth and authenticity, live well.

— Ralph Marston
