Do it anyway

"While one person hesitates
because he feels inferior,
the other is busy making mistakes
and becoming superior."

             - Henry C. Link

Do you feel like you don’t deserve success? Are you afraid that you might fail? Are you afraid you might succeed? Do you worry what other people would think if you were to enthusiastically follow your dream?

Do it anyway!

Wouldn’t it be more comfortable to sit home in front of the TV? What makes you think you could possibly make it? It’s never been done before. We’ve tried that and it didn’t work. The odds are against you.

Do it anyway!

For everything that has ever been achieved, there were plenty of reasons not to do it. Plenty of excuses for those who were unwilling to attempt it. Plenty of risk, discomfort, sacrifice and hard work involved.

Achievers know that excuses are worthless. That risk is a part of life. That with enough commitment, a well-developed plan, and hard work -- anything is possible. Achievers take action while others debate the merits and perfect their excuses.

When you have a dream, follow it. When you see an opportunity, act on it. You DO deserve it, you CAN do it, it WILL take effort and sacrifice. You’ll make mistakes and you’ll learn from them. You’ll have successes and you’ll build on them. Take action toward your dream and you’ll never have cause for regret.

— Ralph Marston
