The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Stop merely trying

Stop trying and start doing. When you see yourself as merely trying, you don’t give yourself the benefit of a solid and complete commitment.

When you’re merely trying, every minor disruption becomes a major excuse for not following through. Go beyond trying, see yourself as doing, and the little bumps along the way will be much less likely to stop you.

Would you rather have a trying life or a life overflowing with achievement and fulfillment? The difference comes by replacing all your trying with the full commitment of doing.

When you see yourself as trying to achieve something, you’re constantly sending yourself a message that you really don’t deserve it. Instead, choose to see yourself as actively making it happen and you’ll become confident of a positive, successful outcome.

If you’re merely trying, what’s the point? Take one more step up on the ladder of commitment, and focus your energy on making it happen.

You deserve that very best that life has to offer. Go beyond just trying, and you will make it so.

— Ralph Marston
