Complicated mess

It’s a highly complex world out there. However, in that complexity you’ll find plenty of opportunities to live with grace, goodness, and fulfillment.

Various single, simple factors do exert their influences. But no one thing is going to cause or solve all your problems all the time.

Living with positive purpose requires navigating through the complexity with persistence, with fortitude. You must be willing and able to pick yourself up and win after repeated defeats.

Quick and easy answers make for powerful promises. Yet almost always they are a lousy strategy.

Set a clear and meaningful goal. Then be willing to work your way through the complicated mess of reality in order to get there.

Much opportunity exists in the complexity of life. Embrace that complexity, understand and appreciate your ability to deal with it, and live the success that is yours to achieve.

— Ralph Marston
