Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality.

Choose achievement

The ability to achieve is part of your very nature. It’s an ability you can tap into by the way you live your life.

If you’re vague about what you intend to do, the results you get will be of minimal value at best. When, on the other hand, you are clear and specific about your goals, you’ll be able to work your way to stunningly magnificent achievements.

If you set your sights too low, your goals will fail to ignite your passion and you’ll quickly lose interest in reaching them. Instead, follow the very best, most meaningful and compelling dreams you can imagine, and they will pull you powerfully forward.

When you expect to get something for nothing, you can expect to be disappointed every time. Yet when you seek to give the best you have, then you’ll end up reaching the best you can imagine.

When your thoughts and actions are scattered and haphazard, you’ll find your efforts getting you nowhere. Discipline yourself to focus all your energy in a consistent direction, and there’s no limit to how far you can go.

Do you wish to choose achievement? Then choose to be clear, passionate, respectful, productive and focused, and the achievement will surely come.

— Ralph Marston
