Make an effort

Effort makes you stronger. Effort makes you more effective.

Even if it doesn’t immediately bring the results you seek, effort moves you in the direction of your goals. Effort demonstrates and teaches, in ways that are undeniable, what works and what doesn’t.

Make an effort, a real, sincere, focused effort, and you make some progress. Make another effort, and another, and another, and you’ll surely get where you intend to go.

Dreaming and wishing and planning and intending all have their places. Yet it is effort that finally gets you there.

Effort makes you feel like you’re getting something done, because you are. It sure beats complaining or wondering or worrying.

Make an effort and make some progress. Make an effort and put some real substance and life into your dreams.

— Ralph Marston
