The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.

Delight yourself with amazement

Challenge is inconvenient and yet it is so absolutely necessary. Effort is not always fun and yet it gives you access to the good, fun and fulfilling parts of life.

Though in the moment it may seem unfair or tedious or boring or frustrating to make the effort, get past all that. Go ahead and do what must be done, especially including the hard stuff.

Looking back on the effort, it will not look so bad. In fact, looking back you’ll be quite thankful you did it.

So now, when the opportunity is here, do it. Now, when your destiny is begging you to respect it, to follow it and give value to it, get going.

Muscle your way through, or finesse your way through, or do what it takes to get it done. Though at the beginning you may not feel you’ll like it, you will come to like it in a deeply satisfying way.

It is amazing what you can do when you put mind, body and spirit into it. Go ahead, do the hard stuff, and delight yourself with amazement at how great it is.

— Ralph Marston
