I have had dreams, and I have had nightmares. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams.

Run toward the efforts

Stop assuming that effort is to be avoided. Effort is a wonderful and powerful thing, because it enables you to make a difference.

You have a fundamental, driving desire to matter, to make a significant difference. Effort is what gives you the opportunity to do that.

The obstacles, problems and challenges will demand great and sustained efforts from you. And through those efforts you can bring immense value to your world.

Your efforts have brought you to where you are today. The quality of your life is driven primarily by the quality and quantity of your efforts.

The necessity of effort is not a burden, but rather is a powerful opportunity. For it is through your efforts that you express and fulfill your most treasured purposes, desires and dreams.

Instead of fighting the efforts, embrace them and enthusiastically seek out many more. Run toward the efforts, and reap life’s most valuable and meaningful rewards.

— Ralph Marston
