The things you do not attempt, you will surely not achieve. Though you may have great excuses and justifications for not taking action, those excuses will bring no value to your life or to the world around you.

You know from experience that life can be a joy when you’re moving steadily toward a positive purpose. Hiding behind excuses simply does not bring that joy or sense of fulfillment.

Undertaking an ambitious project is rarely easy. It can often be uncomfortable and challenging. And there is no guarantee of success. Yet the alternative is far worse. Never attempting anything is indeed a guarantee -- a guarantee of failure.

Be bold. Get in the game. Jump in and make a difference. Set your goals high, and then commit to reaching them through your actions. It won’t be easy. It will be great.

— Ralph Marston
