It is surprising what a man can do when he has to, and how little most men will do when they don't have to.

See with your heart

In your heart, you know what is right and what is wrong. You know what will ultimately move you ahead and what will hold you back. Though you may be very good at rationalizing against it, the truth is evident when you make the effort to look for it. Though others may be skilled at talking you out of it, you know what is best for your life.

Go with your heart. Listen to that voice inside you, the one which makes the most sense and which, in retrospect, is almost always right. In a world where deceit too often is just another strategy, develop a habit of seeing the truth with your heart and not just your eyes.

No matter who else might want to take credit for it, the fact is that you have succeeded in bringing yourself this far. And you are the person best equipped to move yourself positively into the future. The value of your life experience is not only in your mind. It is embedded in your heart. Look at the world with all the good that is within you, and you will see it with sparkling clarity.

— Ralph Marston
