Live your purpose

When you believe in something and are committed to it, you will find a way to achieve it. Wealth and skill with no clear purpose will always, in the end, yield to the undeniable strength of an effort which is dictated and directed by genuine commitment and belief.

The challenge of accomplishment is to build and maintain a solid connection between the mechanics of achievement and the driving purpose which compels that accomplishment.

It is not enough to know what you desire. You must know, without a doubt and in all sincerity, why you desire it. And you must be committed to that reason, with all the best you have to give. Then it will happen.

Look beyond the goals and get in touch with the purposes from which they spring. Put the power of belief and commitment behind your actions. Live your purpose and you’ll be living very well indeed.

— Ralph Marston
