Back on track

If you have gotten a little bit off track, today is a great day to re-focus yourself. All it takes is a single step to put you back into a positive direction. Sure, you’ve slipped a little in the past. That’s no reason to abandon the effort. Get back on track. Take one step and re-commit yourself to going the distance.

The difference between winners and losers is not at the beginning of the race. Everyone is there at the starting line. The winners are the ones who persevere to the end, who see it through, who refuse to give up or give in.

Everyone gets sidetracked on occasion. What makes a winner is the ability to quickly get back in the race after each setback. It is never too late to keep on going, so make a commitment to do just that.

Get yourself back on track today. You have the time, you have the ability and you have the desire. So do it! Make the most of what you’ve already done by seeing it through. Stay on course until the job is finished and you’ll count yourself among the winners!

— Ralph Marston
