The only person you should ever compete with is yourself. You can't hope for a fairer match.

Must do

In each task that must be done, there is opportunity. See the task not as a burden, but as an encouragement to be fully alive and effective.

The real burden would be the inability to do anything. No task is a burden, but is instead the chance to express your own aliveness.

Does the work seem dreary, unimaginative, tedious or boring? That’s mainly because your attitude makes it so.

See what happens when you start by being thankful for the opportunity to do it. Your genuine gratitude will help you to see the positive value.

When the things you must do become things you want to do, it can transform your life. Each moment takes on more meaning, each effort brings greater and greater reward.

Rather than fighting and forcing yourself to do what must be done, let go of your resistance and allow yourself to accomplish. Let what you must, become what you want, and watch yourself begin to soar.

— Ralph Marston
