An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor.

Decide to be

You’re a winner when you decide to be. No other person must give you permission to be successful. There’s no one else to blame when you’re not. Your life is exactly what you determine to make of it.

There are others who can help you and point the way. There are those who will attempt to stand in your way, and some who will probably throw you off track without even meaning to do so. Yet ultimately, you must make the decisions and take the actions which bring to your own life fulfillment or lack thereof.

You have the freedom and the responsibility to make the choices and live the commitments which determine how your life proceeds. It is an awesome and sobering reality, while at the same time truly liberating and full of boundless hope.

You are up to the task. You find yourself here, now, in the truly enviable and challenging position of creating a life filled with greatness. Look in grateful amazement at what you have, at what you can do, and make the most of every minute.

— Ralph Marston
