People of accomplishment rarely sit back and let things happen to them. They go out and happen to things.

Push through the reluctance

Rest for a while when you are weary, but only for a little while. If you rest too long, you will grow even more weary.

The way to have more energy is to utilize more energy. The way to feel like taking action is to build and maintain the momentum of taking action.

Traveling the first mile gives you the vitality to go the second mile, and the third, and the one thousandth. Improve your ability by putting that ability to work.

Push yourself to take the first few steps. Soon enough, momentum will help to push you forward.

At times it can be difficult to find others who will encourage you. So go ahead, get started, and be encouraged by your own action.

When you don’t feel like doing anything is precisely when doing something will make you feel a whole lot better. Push through the weariness, push through the reluctance, and enjoy the power and strength of creating your own momentum.

— Ralph Marston
