The best you can do

Do you do your best each day? Yes, you do. Because at the end of the day, when all is said and done, whatever you’ve accomplished, that’s the best you were able do. Is it good enough? That’s for you to decide.

Do you live up to your expectations? Yes, you do. Because whatever you expect of yourself, is exactly what you’ll get from life.

Are you living the life you truly want? Yes, you are. Because if you truly wanted anything else, you would find a way to have it.

What is the best you can do? What do you expect from yourself? What do you want from life? These things are completely under your control. You decide what is your best. You decide what to expect. And that is what you get.

— Ralph Marston
