Start Where You Stand By Berton Braley

This very day, do something brave to reduce any duplicity in your life. Stand up for yourself with someone who you've allowed to bully you. Apologize to someone with whom you may not have been entirely honest. Immediately- this is a promise- you will find the things you have been longing for drawing nearer to you.—Martha Beck

Start where you stand and never mind the past, The past won't help you in beginning new, If you have left it all behind at last Why, that's enough, you're done with it, you're through; This is another chapter in the book, This is another race that you have planned, Don't give the vanished days a backward look, Start where you stand.

The world won't care about your old defeats If you can start anew and win success; The future is your time, and time is fleet And there is much of work and strain and stress; Forget the buried woes and dead despairs, Here is a brand-new trial right at hand, The future is for him who does and dares, Start where you stand.
