Live it

If you have something to say, say it! If you see that something must be done, do it. If you have an idea, pursue it. If you see a possibility, explore it. If you have a dream, live it!

Why do you think these things come to you? For you to ignore them? No, of course not. The reason you can see what must be done is because you’re the one who can do it. The reason you have a dream is because you’re the person who can live it.

Would you buy a loaf of bread and never eat it? Would you build a house and never live in it? Life comes to you in abundance every moment of every day, and it speeds away from you just as fast. Use it while you have it. That means right now!

Speak your mind. Make a difference. Live life as you envision it. Your possibilities are nothing short of astounding, and you know it. What a waste it would be to hold back even for a minute. Stand up, go forward. Fill each of your days with joy and meaning.

— Ralph Marston
