The following is taken from a blog by my friend and fellow artist, Jim Frederick. His insight on life inspires me to be the best I can be.
Think of the best possible thing that you could accomplish today, and then ask yourself this. What would be even better?
Instead of lowering your expectations to be more in line with reality, raise those expectations and then improve your reality so it matches them. That's a much better choice and yes, you can most certainly do it.
Realize that the best is yet to come. Then get busy and make it happen.
What has happened before may be interesting and useful to know about. Yet all of that is in the past, and right now the world is filled with brand new possibilities.
The quality of your life right now depends on how you life it right now. What will you choose to do with such a magnificent opportunity?
Thank you Jim for everything that you have taught me.
