Wealth is not in making money, but in making the man while he is making money.

Quickly recover

You had the best of intentions, and even got off to a great start. Then you were hit with a totally unexpected disruption.

You can’t turn back the clock and prevent it from happening. Anger, resentment, complaints and self pity might feel appropriate, but they’re not going to improve your situation.

That’s up to you. Fortunately, you’re fully capable and well positioned to do it.

Make it your purpose to quickly recover. No, you certainly didn’t want to have to do so, but now it’s your best way forward.

Accept what’s happened, start with what you have, what you’re left with, and take a positive, productive step. Feel the power of your own intention, the effectiveness of your own action, and keep that feeling going.

You got started, you got ambushed by life, but now you can be right back at it. Make that choice because it’s your best one, and discover how you can prevail no matter what.

— Ralph Marston
