It is surprising what a man can do when he has to, and how little most men will do when they don't have to.

Challenge

The things that challenge you, make you grow. Performance improves in response to a difficult task. Climbing up a hill will make you stronger than walking around the hill or sliding down it.

What challenges do you seek? In each of them you will find a pathway to excellence. Those people who are the most capable, those who are best prepared for success and achievement, are those who have confronted the greatest challenges.

The world is full of challenge, with plenty to go around. There is no shortage of challenge. The shortage is in the number people who are willing to take it on. Be one of those people, and as you grow you’ll find that challenge is indeed overflowing with treasure.

— Ralph Marston
