Your next disappointment

Eagerly anticipate your next disappointment, because it will bring you that much closer to reaching your ultimate goal. If you’re not experiencing disappointment, you’re not attempting anything of consequence. Success is a matter of overcoming the obstacles, so get busy and find those obstacles.

There are a multitude of struggles, disappointments, and risks that are situated between you and your goal. If they didn’t exist, you would already have reached the goal. The joy of achievement comes when you find the strength within yourself to work through the challenges.

Anything worth achieving takes effort. Anything worth achieving presents its own set of difficulties. The greater the obstacles, the greater the accomplishment.

What’s your next disappointment? Find it, work through it, learn and grow. That’s the essence of success.

— Ralph Marston
