This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Why you must

Instead of coming up with reasons why you cannot, come up with reasons why you must. Focus on your purpose, not on your doubts.

Make sure that purpose is authentic, and truly means something to you. If you merely follow someone else’s dream, you won’t like where you end up, even if you somehow manage to get there.

There’s a reason why you care about the things you care about. It’s because you are the person who can give life and meaning and substance to those things.

Admit who you are and what you love. Admit your passions, your interests, your preferences and your desires.

Embrace and celebrate your uniqueness. Feel the driving strength of your most genuine purpose, and let it give energy to everything you do.

Remember always why you must do what you must do. Remember, and find the inspiration to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
