It's important to know that words don't move mountains. Work, exacting work moves mountains.

Decide that you will

Though you’re not yet sure exactly how you’ll finish, go ahead and get started. Even the smallest amount of progress can motivate you to keep going. The big achievements begin with small achievements. And the small achievements come from making the initial effort.

No matter where you intend to go, there is always a first step to be taken. Take that first step now.

Nothing can equal the sense of accomplishment that comes from getting results. Though it’s great to have faith that you can do it, it’s even better when you know from your own experience.

Action is what will transform your faith, your hopes, your best intentions into real and undeniable results. And now is the time to act.

Take that first step, keep on going and don’t look back. You can do it, when you decide that you will.

— Ralph Marston
