Closer Than Ever

December 10, 2008

Failure does not prevent success. In fact, failure is what leads to success. There is no failure, no disappointment, no mistake in your past that can stop you from taking a positive step forward right now. No matter how many times you may have fallen short of the mark before, success is closer than ever.

Each time you get it wrong, you learn more about how to get it right. Keep putting that growing knowledge and experience to use, and you’ll reach your goal.


Every disappointment you’ve ever known is now in the past. The past is over and cannot hold you back.



Now is when you’re able to move forward. Today you can take the valuable lessons you’ve learned and transform them into effective action.



Every step you’ve taken, whether it seemed to work or not, has brought you closer to success. Now go ahead and take the additional steps that will bring you all the way there.



— Ralph Marston

As You Dance With Life

December 1, 2008

What is it about this day that you love? What is it about this moment that you treasure? There is something within your life that compels you to know and experience even more of life. 

What is it, at the heart of things, that drives you so? What makes it so wonderful to float peacefully on a calm sea under the warm sun? Why does the beauty of a distant mountain peak touch your heart so profoundly? There is a reason why you have opinions about a wide range of matters large, small and in between. 

There is a guiding purpose at the heart of each sincere choice you make. As you dance with life each day, your steps follow a rhythm that stays true to the genuine person inside, no matter what else may or may not happen. 

Though you interact intimately with all that is around you, something within you is apart from it all, relishing the experience. Breathe deeply the sweet, fresh air of being. And keep dancing, as each unfolding moment brings a brand new verse of the song you’ve always known.
