Push yourself

Successful people push themselves. Everyone else waits to be pushed. When someone else does the pushing, you don’t get where you want to go.

The way to determine your own destiny is to expect the best of yourself, and then expect a little more. You know what you’re capable of, and only you can make it happen. Only you can fully realize your potential. No one can do it for you.

Inside of you are unlimited possibilities that will take you wherever you want to go. The desires you have, the things you want for your life, come to you only because you know, at some level, that they are possible. You have what it takes, so use it. When you push yourself toward your dreams, nothing can push you away.

— Ralph Marston
