You are made to make a difference, and you have a constant desire to make a difference. So instead of sulking, instead of complaining, instead of filling your thoughts with empty wishes, fill your time with purposeful effort and make that difference.
Now is when achievement can happen, yet it doesn't just happen on its own. Take the first little step, feel how good and right it feels, and suddenly you're making it happen.
There's nothing to be gained by waiting for the perfect time or the perfect conditions. Now is the perfect time because it is the time you have.
You can transform today into meaningful achievement, or you can transform it into painful regret. Make the effort to make the achievement happen, and you'll thank yourself over and over again.
Achieve today, because you can and because it will lift your whole world higher. Achieve today, and experience life at its best.
