Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

Show up

Did you show up for work today? Sure, your bones and skin and clothes and hair are there, but did you show up, too? Do you bring your true and valuable self to the things you do?

If you’re going to do it, if you’re going to be there, show up with the best you have. So many times we defeat ourselves before we even start, because we fail to commit our best to the effort.

Anyone is capable of excellence. Anyone is capable of greatness. All that’s required is to show up, to truly show up and put the whole of one’s being into the effort. Every person alive is filled to the brim with value and possibilities, with passion, with purpose. Whenever all that abundance is focused and directed, the result is an undeniable greatness.

Show up with all you have, and great things will happen.

— Ralph Marston
