Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding about ourselves.

Go for it

What would really get you going today? What would make you so excited, so enthusiastic, so motivated, and so full of energy that you literally could not stop until you had it done?

Everyone is motivated by something. What is it that gets you going? What is it that would compel you to transcend any obstacle, to do whatever is necessary to pursue it?

Do you know what it would be? If not, then it’s well worth your effort to find out. Dig into your desires. Get in touch with your purposes and passions. Discover the things that are truly important to you.

When you do know what it is, by all means go for it. You’ll find your greatest success pursuing those things for which you have the greatest passion. Look at any successful person and you’ll see a driving passion constantly pushing that person forward.

You cannot simply be successful. You must be successful at certain things in particular. Your success must have an objective, or it cannot ever happen. Find an objective that you can get passionate about, and put the whole of your self into making it happen.

— Ralph Marston
