Keep the good value coming

Refuse to rest on your success. Instead, expand on it.

Don’t make success itself the biggest threat to your success. Be careful not to let complacency water down your desire to make a difference.

When success comes, respond with gratitude, humility, and ambition. Choose to see your success not as a reward, but as an opportunity.

If the only thing you do with your good fortune is consume it, you’ll soon be left with a bitter regret for the opportunity you’ve missed. Instead, grab that opportunity while you have it, and build on your success.

Working toward each achievement is where the real joy of achievement lives. Experience a whole lot more of that joy by continuing to do the good work of achievement.

Make each success into a new starting point. And keep the good value coming.

— Ralph Marston
