It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

Pulled toward the goal

It can transform you from tired and weary to energetic and excited. It can motivate you to push yourself beyond previous expectations. It can encourage you to learn from every experience. It can fill you with a positive spirit. It can inspire persistence. It can bring on sure and steady effort. It can produce incredible results.

What is it? A clearly defined goal -- something meaningful and challenging to which you can look forward. The amount of effort you can produce and the number of obstacles you can transcend will be significantly affected by the desirability of the reward you pursue.

If you’re having trouble moving forward, perhaps your dream is not big enough or clear enough or real enough. The effort you put into defining, clarifying and connecting with your dreams will pay valuable dividends of focus, commitment and creative energy.

Make your goals strong enough to pull you to them. Not only will you eventually achieve them, you’ll live more abundantly every step of the way.

— Ralph Marston
