You can’t fail

As Dr. Robert Schuller asks, “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?"

Well, guess what. You cannot fail. It is impossible. If you take any kind of action, and many times even if you don’t do anything, you will succeed in accomplishing something. You will always have a result.

Now the trick is, to make sure the result is to your liking. That is the key.

So, as long as you’re going to accomplish something, make it something you want. You are always heading toward some result with the actions you take. To change the result, simply change the actions.

You are powerful and effective, whether you try to be or not. Your power can either work for you, or against you. It all depends on the actions you take, moment after moment, day after day, month after month. Direct your power toward your dream and it will happen.

— Ralph Marston
