Feel like it

Those mornings when you’re reluctant to get out of bed are the very days when you’ll gain the most by going ahead, getting up and getting started. The challenges you’ve been avoiding are the very ones that will compel you to make the most progress.

Step eagerly forward and do the hard stuff. Jump in and tackle the difficult challenges.

Life is about making a difference. The bigger the challenge is, the more of a positive difference you can make.

Don’t focus on the discomfort you may have to endure. Instead, go ahead and feel the extreme sense of satisfaction and accomplishment that come from moving forward and doing what must be done.

Instead of forever regretting the missed opportunities, wake up and seize those opportunities. Make full and productive use of the priceless moment that is right here in front of you.

If you don’t feel like it, choose to make yourself feel like it. By the time the day is done, you’ll truly be glad you did.

— Ralph Marston
