The difficult work

It feels good to do good. It feels good to push yourself, to challenge yourself, and to meet those challenges.

Give yourself that good feeling. Find out, again and again, how much you can grow, improve, achieve, advance.

The more demanding the work, the more satisfying the reward you get from it. Demand the best from yourself, and deliver it.

The easy stuff won’t get you very far, won’t stimulate, inspire, or fulfill you. Be willing for the endeavor to be difficult, and you’ll be able to make it great.

Whatever is difficult to obtain, create, develop, is valuable to have. Envision the difficulty of the effort as a shield, protecting and maintaining the value of the fruit of that effort.

Do the difficult work, get through that protective layer. And reach the great value inside.

— Ralph Marston
