There is no freedom like seeing myself as I am and not losing heart.

Jump start yourself into action

The next few minutes will pass by quickly. Go ahead and start right now to make the most of them. Go ahead and do it. Time will pass, whether you take action or not. Harvest each moment while it’s here -- once it passes it is of no use to you.

In just a few short minutes, you can have momentum on your side. Or you can be filled with regret. The choice is yours. Once you get started, it’s easy to keep going.

For every excuse that prevents you from taking action, there’s an equally compelling reason to just go ahead and do it. What do you really want to accumulate -- excuses or results?

Would you stand on the beach and throw gold coins into the ocean? Of course not. So why sit there and throw valuable, golden moments into oblivion? They’re yours to use, but only if you use them now.

— Ralph Marston
