Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect.

What’s your mission today?

It is easy to spot people who are on a compelling mission. They’re noticeably determined, focused, energetic, enthusiastic and unstoppable. The excitement surrounding their goal is infectious and they easily enlist the support of others. No obstacle is too great, but rather is another challenge to be overcome.

In reality, everyone is always on a mission. It’s just that most “missions” are not all that exciting, and too many people jump from one to another. Yet at any point in time, we’re all committed to something.

What is your mission for today? Is it just to get through the day with the least amount of effort? Or is it something so exciting, so compelling that people are lining up to join you? Whatever you’re fully committed to, will happen. Make the commitment to live out the exciting possibilities available to you, today and every day. Make your mission worthy of the wonderful person that you are.

— Ralph Marston
