Remember the possibilities

If you are even the slightest bit discouraged, you’re not paying attention. You’re only seeing a tiny fraction of possibilities.

Yes, terrible things can and do happen, some people are idiots and others are tyrants, that is all true. But those harsh realities have always been present, and just look at how incredibly far life has come in spite of them.

There are tools and resources instantly available to you that your great-grandfather would have willingly worked for decades to obtain. Ask yourself, what would he think of you letting such an opportunity as you now have go to waste?

For your entire life you’ve experienced that your actions have consequences. By applying enough of those actions in a consistent, meaningful, purposeful direction, you can create positive change in your world.

That power exists every morning when you wake up. It’s up to you to decide where to direct it, and then to put forth the effort required.

All things considered, that’s a small price to pay for creating value and fulfillment. And now is a great time for putting that bargain into practice.

— Ralph Marston
