Make It Count

If you're going to do, to have, or be something, then make it count. Don't hide. Let your uniqueness shine through.

What good is it if you have a beautiful singing voice, and no one ever hears you? What value is your above-normal intelligence, if you don't use it to accomplish something? Are you using your abilities, your talents, your time, your resources -- your life -- to the greatest extent possible?

Life is precious and it is a terrible shame to waste every moment of every day. You are a special person. There is no one else like you in the entire history of the world. You have something special to give, to do and to be. No one else can do it for you.

Look at yourself and find what it is that makes you special. The things that make you happy, the things you enjoy, the things you would do even if you weren't being paid -- these are your special gifts. These are what you can offer the world.

Make the commitment to be the person you were meant to be. Let your life blossom into fulfillment and accomplishment. Celebrate each moment and make it count!

-Ralph Marston
