The promise of today

How can you be defeated when you still have today? What could possibly keep you down, who could dare to hold you back, when the promise of a new day looms?

The day that lies ahead has not yet happened, and you can make of it whatever you will. You are right here, right now, with everything you need to make this your most successful day yet.

Every mistake you’ve ever made is now in the past. Each one has taught you something. Today is yours, free and clear, the grandest opportunity you’ve ever known.

The disappointments and regrets that once felt like such a burden, now give you the energy and desire to move ahead. Today has more than enough promise, and you can make it yours.

— Ralph Marston
