What you get out of life is not merely a result of what you put into it. What you get out of life and what you put into it are precisely one and the same.
Every moment is an opportunity to invest yourself in meaningful purpose. The quality of that investment at any given time is what defines the true quality of your life.
Fulfillment is not about acquiring something that exists outside of you. It is about more richly and more completely experiencing the unique, magnificent value that is already and always within you.
Life's circumstances do not, in and of themselves, enhance or detract from the value of your life. Each event, each circumstance gives you a new way to explore and experience that value.
The best you can live is the best you are willing to give, and there's no limit to what that can be. Fully invest yourself in each moment, and delight in the limitless treasure that is already yours.
