Invest in Yourself

The harder you work
the harder it is to surrender.

             -- Vince Lombardi

Do you have trouble making a commitment to your goals? Perhaps you need to invest more of yourself in them. The more you work toward something, the more committed you become. And the more committed you are, the more you will work toward it. It is an upward spiral toward certain success.

Invest time and effort in yourself, and in your dreams. Start out small, and work consistently. Before you know it, you’ll have something to show for your effort. And you’ll have something even more important -- the determination to keep going. The things you build and create, are the things you will value, appreciate, protect and use to their fullest extent.

The things you build and create, no one can take away from you. You won’t let them! The goals and dreams you really work toward, no one will be able to steal from you. No amount of discouragement, challenge or setback can stop you, when you’ve invested enough of yourself.

Get up and get to work. Build, produce, create, take action. Then do it again and again. Before long, you won’t be able to stop.

— Ralph Marston
