A man is rich in proportion to the number of things which he can afford to let alone.

Go beyond

You’ve just achieved a spectacular success. Now go beyond it. You’ve just had an overwhelming obstacle thrown in your path. Now go beyond it.

Whether your past has been filled with triumph or disappointment, the thing to do now is to go beyond it. Failure cannot hold you back unless you let it. And if you allow good fortune to hold you back, it’s not really a lasting success.

If you’re not moving forward, where are you going? Whatever has happened is already past. Now is your chance to go beyond it.

No matter what has gone before, go beyond it. Each day, each moment, is a fresh new opportunity. Go beyond, and unlimited possibilities await you.

— Ralph Marston
