Just as iron rusts from disuse, even so does inaction spoil the intellect.

Anyone can

Anyone who flips on a light switch will cause the lights to turn on. Anyone who shifts an automobile into gear and presses on the accelerator pedal, will cause the car to move forward. Anyone who takes the steps necessary to build a successful business, will do so.

Achieving results is a matter of putting forth the necessary effort. Anyone can achieve any result by making the specific efforts required to reach that result.

Make the same efforts as a winner, and you will have the same results. Take the necessary sequence of steps, and you’ll arrive at the destination of your choice.

It really doesn’t matter who you are, or where you came from, or what disappointments you’ve experienced in the past. Any achievement, no matter how small or how grand, is a simple cause-and-effect proposition. Make the right effort and you’ll get the desired result.

— Ralph Marston
