Success demands specifics

Success demands specifics. You can be immensely successful but you cannot be ambiguously successful.

You always possess great potential. To be realized and manifested, that potential must have a precise target.

Whatever your personal limitations and shortcomings may be, life’s greatness can flow through you in limitless measure. For that to happen, you must give it somewhere to flow.

When you set your mind upon a purpose, and commit yourself to fulfill that purpose, positive energy suddenly floods into your life. Every action, every thought, every moment, every circumstance brings opportunity to make progress.

It doesn’t really matter if your purpose seems silly or trivial, unsophisticated or incomprehensible to others. What matters is that it matters to you, and that you focus on it with all you have.

You are filled in every moment with life’s miraculous energy, eager to be put to use. Direct that energy in a specific, meaningful way and the results will be nothing short of amazing.

— Ralph Marston
