Energy and drive

Just about any technique, process or system can lead to success or to failure. What matters most is not the technique, but the energy and drive you put into it.

If you feel you’re stuck in a hopeless situation, you’ll remain stuck as long as you feel that way. As soon as you become enthusiastic about the opportunities for improvement, you’ll begin to make those improvements.

In every kind of endeavor, there are those who succeed spectacularly and those who barely get by. The difference is not in the occupation, but in attitude, commitment and level of energy.

There are people who make it their business to make a positive difference in life. Choosing each day to be one of those people will give you a continuing supply of amazingly effective energy.

Even though you may not be in an ideal situation, you can create an ideal outcome. Use the day, use the moment, use the encounter, use the circumstance to lift the world higher.

With an attitude of generosity and a commitment to excellence, every day can be a great day. Decide to give real, meaningful value to life right now, and feel the positive energy begin to flow.

— Ralph Marston
