What you can achieve

If you’re not overwhelmed with enthusiasm for the goal, make it bigger. Make it so big and so compelling that you cannot avoid thinking about it and working on it day after day.

If you find yourself complaining that it’s too difficult, the real problem could be that it’s not meaningful enough. You can change that.

Everything you do requires effort and some level of commitment. So make that effort and commitment count for something that’s truly important to you.

Set your sights on an objective that will positively pull you toward it. Choose something that will keep you excited and enthusiastic and focused on achievement.

Give your life and your efforts a clear, solid, meaningful direction. Give yourself a compelling reason to persist through every challenge.

Envision a goal so valuable and desirable that you cannot help but work toward it every day. And be truly amazed at what you can achieve.

— Ralph Marston
