Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect.

Be willing to

If you want to learn, be willing to make some mistakes. If you want to achieve, be willing to experience some disappointment.

The good and valuable things in life are absolutely within your reach. Yet the pathway to them is not straight and easy.

To achieve what you desire, you must be willing to get away from what is comfortable and familiar. To create meaningful value, you must be willing to put forth some meaningful effort.

Life is overflowing with magnificent possibilities. There is no shortage of opportunity for great fulfillment when you are willing to do what must be done.

Be willing, not just for a little while at first, but for as long as it takes. Be willing, not just to take the easiest way out but to take the most effective, the most challenging way forward.

Great things come to those who are willing. Be willing, and bring your own special greatness to life.

— Ralph Marston
