Reach high

Even a small effort can change your momentum from negative to positive. But why settle for just a small effort?

When life seems overwhelming, dig in and go to work. When there’s a lot to be done, there’s also a lot that can be accomplished. When the challenges are difficult and complicated, that’s your opportunity to create enormous value. When the situation is tough, that’s your chance to grow stronger.

A quick look in the mirror will confirm something you may have forgotten about. Namely, you are designed and equipped to positively thrive on challenge. You’re intuitive, curious, creative, flexible, and effective, among many other things. And you’ve experienced how great it feels to make full, productive use of what you have.

So stand tall and reach for the biggest challenges, the ones that others may shy away from. Reach for the biggest challenges, and they will pull you ever higher.

— Ralph Marston
