It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.

No free ride

Don’t expect a free ride. Do the work to create a great ride.

Don’t wish for a life free of effort. Embrace your ability to put forth effort, and arrange your life so that all your efforts are highly fulfilling.

As enticing as it might seem, you will not find any real joy in running away from your responsibilities. Choose instead to celebrate those responsibilities, and to experience the value that comes from honoring and supporting them.

Your life is a grand opportunity, and this day is a crucial part of that opportunity. Just like any valuable opportunity, it is highly demanding.

So stand tall, and feel the joy of knowing that you are meeting those demands. Work with vigor, with enthusiasm, and with the confidence of seeing firsthand that you’re making a difference.

Your life is a difficult and rewarding job. Commit all you have to doing the job, and taste the sweet rewards that flow forth into each day.

— Ralph Marston
