“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” – Arthur Ashe
You can’t get much simpler than this. We are all someplace, with a certain collection of skills and talents. We use these skills and talents at a certain level of proficiency.
Each of us is unique. My skills and talents will be different than yours. It really is all about who will begin, who will use all their skills and have the willingness to try.
Many times, this separates those that execute and succeed and those that dream and do nothing. This secondary group wastes their talents because they are never used. Talents and skills that are neglected, even the ones we are given will degrade.
We are either moving forward or moving backward. There is no standing still.
So, do the best you can with what you have from where you are, and you will do well. You will learn what needs to be improved, what needs to be learned, what needs to be done.
It’s all up to you. Now go get it!
Until next time…
