The person who starts out simply with the idea of getting rich won't succeed; you must have a larger ambition.

Value in the doing

The reward is rewarding because you have earned it. It is the work that goes into the planting and cultivation that makes the harvest worth celebrating.

Your effort is what makes your opportunities come to life. Fulfillment has meaning precisely because of the work it demands.

Practice and commitment are what make your skills and abilities yours to use. Discipline and focused effort are what make the achievements worth achieving.

No effort, no job, no task is beneath you. For with each effort comes a new opportunity to enrich your life and your world.

Sure, the task may be difficult. Instead of worrying or complaining about how difficult it is, think about the value it enables you to create.

Embrace the challenge, jump into the effort, and work your way through the difficulties. There is great value in the doing, and now is your opportunity to bring that value to life.
