Make it happen

The more difficult the task you face, the better you’ll feel when you get it done. So plunge right in and get to work on it. It won’t get done by itself. You’re the one who will make it happen.

Tackle the most difficult, tedious, challenging things first. Start off with the things you really don’t want to do but you know you must. Get them out of the way. Once you’ve gotten past them, the things you do want to do will be all the more enjoyable and productive.

Success comes from thinking ahead and taking the actions which will serve you best, not simply the actions which serve the whims of the moment. You are worthy and you are capable, so make it count. Harness your awesome capabilities and make some positive progress.

The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be finished. Before long, those tough challenges which have been nagging you and worrying you will be behind you. Just imagine how great that will feel. Just imagine what you’ll be able to do next! Get busy and get it done. Then you can look back on today as a day of great accomplishment upon which you can build even more.

— Ralph Marston
