Positively influence the future

Make the choices today that will make you thankful tomorrow. Act in this moment in a way you’ll look back to with gratitude.

Are there choices in your past that you regret? Don’t burden yourself with any new regrets.

You have the opportunity right now to influence the quality of your life going forward. Make good use of that opportunity.

Today will soon end, yet its consequences can continue for months or years. Do all you can so those consequences will be more helpful than harmful.

No one can accurately predict the future. Yet anyone on any day has the very real ability to positively influence the future.

So go ahead and imagine yourself looking back on right now. And do what your future self would most want you to do.

— Ralph Marston
