Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

Let the efforts flow

Hold yourself to a high standard, yet don’t be so critical of yourself that you never get anything done. What you do is worthy and valuable even though it may not be perfect.

Seek to stay focused, but don’t beat yourself up when you happen to lose your focus, for that will merely prolong the interruption. Simply let the lapse go, and let your focus calmly and confidently return.

Be honest with yourself about your shortcomings, and work to gain strength in the areas where you are weak. Remind yourself often, though, that you are worthy of the best no matter what your strengths and weaknesses may be.

Live with intention and positive ambition, but not with obsession. Make achievement a joy rather than a job.

The less you fight against life, the more effective you’ll be. Peacefully and thankfully enjoy where you are, and there will be much value to create and to live.

You are here to do great things, and in your own way, you surely will. Let your dreams inspire you, let your efforts flow, and let the results come as they will.

— Ralph Marston
