The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example.

Keep getting results

When you get the results you’re after, that’s great. When the results fall short of your expectations, that’s great too because you gain valuable knowledge and experience.

If you’re going through a difficult stretch, keep going and you’ll get yourself beyond it. If you’re getting unsatisfactory results, keep making the effort, keep getting results and as you grow more effective with each attempt, you’ll eventually get it just right.

With each action you take, you make a difference. The more experience you have at making a difference, the more skillful you become at making that difference exactly what you want it to be.

Look back at how far you’ve come since you started. See and understand how even the disappointing results have helped you to find your way forward.

With every effort, regardless of the outcome, you’ve made a step in the direction of the results you seek. Always expect the best, no matter what has happened before, for your results will move steadily toward your expectations.

Keep going, keep making the effort, keep making a difference and keep getting results. Each day, each action brings you ever closer to the goal.

— Ralph Marston
