The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

Whatever route is available

You don’t have to overcome your hesitation, your doubt, your fear. You can still have the hesitation, doubt, and fear, and act anyway.

You don’t have to fight against your reluctance. You can simply accept that reluctance, and then do what must be done.

You don’t have to be inspired to the maximum degree. Just do the job, and the inspiration will take care of itself.

Put one foot in front of the other. Make one phone call, and then another.

A perfect, frictionless pathway is nice, but certainly not necessary. You can work with what you have, with its distractions, frustrations and other imperfections.

The perfect pathway is probably not going to appear, but you can nevertheless get where you wish to go. Keep taking whatever route is available, and you’ll get yourself there.

— Ralph Marston
