I can think of nothing less pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.

What are you waiting for?

Right now, today, you have everything you need to create the life you want. The only thing left to do, is to do it. Make the commitment, take the action, do whatever needs to be done to make your life count.

Anything less than the best you can be, is just cheating yourself and the world. You are special. You have something unique to offer. What is holding you back? What is keeping you from living your life to the fullest?

There will never be a better time than now, to begin to be the person you were meant to be. Make the effort. Give it your best shot. Just do it. Whatever it takes, do it. It will be difficult. It will be painful. But the pain of effort, of discipline, is miniscule compared to the pain of regret.

The time you spend today, you will never have again. You rarely regret the things you did -- most regret is for the things you didn’t do. Put one foot in front of the other, today, tommorow, and the next day. Take the first step, and then the next, and don’t stop until you’re where you want to be.

— Ralph Marston
