Committed to make it work

Do you hesitate to take action because you’re not sure if you’ll be effective? Remember that achievement is built on efforts that work as well as efforts that don’t work.

Some of your individual efforts may not bring the desired results. Yet when you are committed to keep doing whatever is necessary, you are sure to find a way.

The important thing is to focus on the goal, and put your energy into doing your best to reach that goal. Accept that you may not get the result you desire, then step forward anyway, and do everything within your power to achieve that result.

At the very least, you’ll gain valuable experience. And with enough experience, you’ll eventually be able to get it right.

It’s true that there are no guarantees. After all, if it were a sure thing, someone else, far less capable than you, would have already claimed the prize.

Go ahead and make the effort. It will work when you’re committed to make it work.

— Ralph Marston
