Good thoughts are no better than good dreams, unless they be executed.

Get in the game

Whatever you do not attempt, you will most certainly not achieve. The more you just sit and watch life go by, the less it will be to your liking.

Jump in and make a difference. Your complaints and excuses may be elaborate and well reasoned, yet they give you no fulfillment. If you’re not satisfied with the way things are, take action. Only you can fulfill the promise of your own life.

Get in the game, and play it like your life depends on it, because it does. Don’t expect it to be easy. The beauty of success and accomplishment are that they’re NOT easy. A body builder does not build large muscles by lifting small weights. The challenges are what will make you grow.

Achievement is not what you get. It is what you become. Stand up, step forward, and meet life head on.

— Ralph Marston
