Keep the goal in sight

When the goal is in sight, you’re much more highly motivated to work toward it. So no matter how far away the goal is, keep it in sight and keep moving enthusiastically toward it.

When you can see that you’re making progress, you are naturally encouraged to make more progress. So as you move forward, remind yourself how far you’ve come, and keep on going.

Nothing can take the place of a clear and meaningful purpose. So give yourself the energy to achieve by knowing exactly where you wish to go and why you want to get there.

Feel the achievement and the rewards that come with it as you work steadily toward it. Keep your vision focused on the goal as you move ever closer to that goal.

Effort becomes effortless and energy becomes far more abundant when you see the objective getting closer and closer. Make use of the power of your dream to make that dream come true.

Get the goal in sight and keep it there as you enjoy your own effective effort to move forward. Keep the goal in sight, no matter what, and achievement is yours. ~ Ralph Marston



Be Thankful

When you don’t know what to do, be thankful. When you don’t know how to be, be thankful.

When the joys come, be thankful. When the challenges and sorrows arrive, be thankful.

In every experience there is always some value. Be thankful for the opportunity to have the experience, no matter what it is.

Be thankful, and become more intensely aware of life’s abundance. Be thankful, and discover new ways to make good use of that abundance.

Be thankful for the moment, whatever it may bring. For your thankfulness will add value to anything it lands upon.

Be thankful for what is, and you will see the beauty and the possibilities in it. Be thankful, and be amazed at how much better life becomes.

— Ralph Marston

Be Amazing

You’re not here today to just get by. You’re here to be amazing.

There are a lot of challenges and obstacles, yet there is no reason to be anything less than amazing. Feel the true passion that lives in you, and let the passion push you to do something amazing.

Look around, and see how beautiful and filled with wonder the world is. You are part of an amazing universe, and can be just as amazing in your own unique way.

Today is not just a couple dozen hours to struggle through. Today represents your opportunity to express your amazing nature in new ways.

Focus your attention and energy on what you love and treasure most. In that love is the power to be authentically and uniquely amazing.

This is a one-of-a-kind, amazing day. You’re here to make it even more so, so starting right now, do it. ~ Ralph Marston

Magnificent Possibilities of Now

This place, right here, is a very good place to be. On this day, in this moment and situation, all kinds of great possibilities exist.

You are at the right place and the right time to truly make a difference in the world. Let go of the worries and fears, of the judgments and old assumptions, and feel the magnificence of what’s now possible.

You have a powerful combination of awareness, ability, love, passion and presence in this place. Just imagine all the great things you can do, beginning right now, with all that.

Where you are, there is great value to be created. Who you are, is the person who can create that value in ways that are meaningful and beautiful.

You have what it takes, for what it takes flows from your authentic being. You have what it takes, so do what it takes.

Give yourself to the magnificent possibilities of now. And give your life, and all of life around you, the best moment yet.

— Ralph Marston

Such a good motivational thought for today! 🙂

Use What You Have

Don’t waste a lot of time making judgments about what you have. Instead, put it to use.

Stop complaining that it’s not enough or that it’s not fair. Just get busy and make the most of it.

Fighting against what already is, will only slow you down. Instead, make good and productive use of what is, whatever it may be, and you’ll find many ways to move forward.

If you wait until things are perfect before taking action, that day will never come. Use what you have, as flawed and imperfect as it may seem, and you’ll soon be making massive improvements to it all.

Don’t worry about comparing what you have to what others may or may not have. Just concern yourself with doing the best you can do.

Start from where you are, with what you have, and persistently do what you know you must do. There is no limit to where you can go.

— Ralph Marston

Beyond Your Blessings

Have you stopped to think on this day what a privilege it is to be living it? Though today is far from perfect, it is also filled with far more possibilities than you could ever imagine.

In the midst of a difficult problem, have you ever thought to be thankful for it? By doing so, you can begin to change that problem from a negative to a positive force.

When fear has taken hold of you, do you pause for a moment to be thankful for that fear? Remember, the fear is there to prepare you and not to hold you back.

If you’re feeling anxious and frustrated, can you find a way to be thankful? It can focus the energy of that frustration in a positive and productive direction.

Beyond your many blessings, there is so much more for which to be thankful. Be thankful for it all, whatever it may be.

Be thankful for it all. And beyond your many blessings, will be many, many more.

— Ralph Marston
