Do what is difficult

Achievement is the result of doing what is difficult. If you’re not willing to do what is difficult, you won’t get very far.

Doing what is difficult is not really as bad as it might seem, when you simply go ahead and do it. Stop avoiding, quit procrastinating, and you actually make it easier to do what is difficult and necessary.

Many times you’ve seen how working through challenges can strengthen you. You’ve felt your confidence grow by choosing to face life’s difficulties rather than hide from them.

In difficulty is great opportunity. Be the person who seizes that opportunity.

Jump in and take on the tough assignments. Be willing to do what is difficult, and you bring success, satisfaction, new value and fulfillment into your life.

Show life how much you love it by having the courage to do what is necessary, even when it is difficult, uncomfortable and inconvenient. Do what is difficult, and leave a positive trail wherever you go.

— Ralph Marston
