Inspired by the difficulties

Do you want to complain about not being able to get it done? Or would you prefer to actually get it done?

Do you seek to have an impressive sounding excuse? Or would you rather have a real, substantive achievement?

The world pushes against you often, that is true. Life is not fair, and disappointing results are all too common.

You can be offended by that, and use it as an excuse. Or you can accept the challenge, and transform it into an inspiration.

Nobody cares why you can’t. What makes people stand up and take notice, is doing what you can.

So go ahead, and instead of being excused by the difficulties, be inspired to act. Do what you can, every chance you get, and you will surely get the job done.
