How will you do it?

Do you have a goal? Do you have a dream? Is there something you want? Are you willing to go for it?

A goal is not a wish. A dream is not a wish. Wishes are passive thoughts that only serve to point out our deficiencies. Dreams and goals are active intentions, backed up by commitment, effort and persistence.

Be bold. Be willing to do whatever it takes, and you will most certainly find a way. Be willing, and you will be able. You are incredibly adaptive. You are highly resourceful. The whole of your being is a finely tuned machine that serves to bring about whatever you truly desire.

Your ability is a direct result of your passion and commitment. It makes no difference how out of reach your goal may seem. Be willing, and you will be able.

— Ralph Marston
