Truly desire

Let go of the goals that don’t mean anything. And you’ll have plenty of energy and resources available for the goals that do have real meaning.

Stop wasting your time on merely keeping up the appearance of having a successful life. Put your moment-by-moment focus on actually living a joyous, fulfilling life.

Reach higher, not because it looks good to do so. Reach higher toward the accomplishments that will genuinely fulfill your purpose.

You have the power to attain what you truly desire. The key is that you do indeed truly desire it.

For it is authentic desire, and the deep purpose behind it, that will motivate you to sustain the effort. Authentic desire gives birth to focus, discipline, resourcefulness, effectiveness and persistence.

Take the time and do the work to fully understand what you truly desire. The more clearly you know what it is, the more surely you can make it real.

— Ralph Marston
