Easier said than done

Everything is easier said than done. But just because something is difficult to do, doesn’t mean it is impossible.

In fact, the more difficult something is, the more valuable it is when you do in fact get it done. Instead of complaining that it’s easier said than done, put your energy into making it happen.

On the other side of great challenge is great reward. Work through the challenge, and get yourself to the reward.

Yes, that will take time, effort, commitment, decisiveness and persistence. And it will be worth all that and more.

The way to get it done is to start where you are, to keep going forward, and to constantly remind yourself why. Though it’s certainly not as easy as just saying you will, it is absolutely within your ability to make good and valuable things happen.

Act in accordance with the way you wish your life to be. Though it’s easy to say, it’s much, much better to do.

— Ralph Marston
