You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.

Momentum of effort

The way to feel like doing it is to do it. The way to get the work done is to get started and to keep going.

When you’re already doing nothing, it’s much too easy to continue doing nothing. Yet you can always choose to break that pattern.

Momentum is a powerful force. So get it working in your favor.

Don’t be held back by the momentum of idleness. Get busy, establish the momentum of effort, and let it push you powerfully toward achievement.

In just one moment, in just one step forward, you can get yourself going. Then, take one more step and you begin to get momentum on your side.

You can do it, so do it. Don’t keep your achievements waiting one moment longer.

— Ralph Marston
