The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating -- in work, in play, in love.

Make things happen

Never forget that you have the ability to make things happen. It is a truly amazing and powerful ability that too often you take for granted. You use it quite effectively every day to make the little things happen. Keep in mind that the same ability you use to make little things happen can also make big things happen. Because when you look very closely, the big things are made up of lots of little things.

The fact is that you have the ability, right now in this moment, to take positive action, no matter how ambitious the goal, no matter how daunting the challenge. You can make things happen the way you want them to happen.

There’s no need in waiting for fortune to smile on you. You already have what you need because you already have the ability to make things happen. Whatever must be overcome, you can overcome. Whatever can be achieved, you can achieve. Really decide to do it, and you’re halfway there. Take the first step, and you’re three quarters of the way there. Persist for as long as necessary, and you’ve made it happen.

Make full use of your ability to make things happen. Focus and direct that ability to make your world a better place for yourself and all the other people in it.

— Ralph Marston
