Joy you deserve

Effort itself is a joy, once you get going with it. Usually the problem comes with getting yourself going in the first place.

So if you’re reluctant to start, remind yourself of this. Effort is a joy, and not only is it a joy, it solves problems, creates value, and brings other great rewards.

Effort is an opportunity to make a difference. Effort enables you to do something meaningful and creative with your time.

Effort is a whole lot better than just sitting there. Sure, there’s a time for relaxation, but too much relaxation will quickly make you miserable and restless.

Effort connects you to your best possibilities. Effort brings your dreams to life.

As difficult and inconvenient as it might sometimes be, effort is a joy you deserve to experience again and again. So go ahead, make the effort and give yourself some of that joy right now.

— Ralph Marston
