Insist on achievement

The easy things allow you to become bored, complacent, soft. The difficult things push you to be strong, interesting, passionate, accomplished.

Many of life’s necessities can now be obtained by simply tapping on a screen. That’s all wonderful, impressive, efficient, yet you desire and deserve much more challenge than that.

Insist on achievement from yourself today, not just activity. Seek out meaningful challenge, and let it pull great work out of you.

Creativity and ingenuity have eased many of the challenges of everyday life. That gives you the opportunity to tackle bigger, more difficult, fulfilling challenges.

You are here in this amazing moment to do more than just get through the day. Summon your strength, engage your creativity, and discover a new way to show life how great it can be.

Feel your desire to achieve as it wells up in you, fed by gratitude, wonder and love. Let it push you into action, doing the work to make life great in your own special way.

— Ralph Marston
