All glory comes from daring to begin.

A life of success is not a life free of problems. A life of success is a life in which you acknowledge, accept and deal with the problems and challenges.

Achievement comes not from avoiding the problems. On the contrary, achievement comes from diving into problems and transforming them into positive, meaningful value.

Yes, there are plenty of negative influences in life over which you have no control. However, you have great control over what you think and what you do, so make positive, productive use of that ability.

Convince yourself, without the slightest doubt, that it is possible for you to move forward. Then act on your convictions, and do whatever is necessary to make real progress.

It will not be easy, but when all is said and done, easy is not really what you’re after. What you’re after is a life of meaning, fulfillment, joy and substance.

Instead of running or hiding from the problems, face them with confidence and positive expectations. You are worthy of the best, so work through every challenge and live the very best life you can envision.

— Ralph Marston
