If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
-- John D. Rockefeller

Are you constantly contradicting yourself? Do your words say one thing and your actions say another?

Do you spend the morning filled with love and compassion, and then act out of hatred and anger in the afternoon? Do you live one day with positive focus and then spend the next day mired in negativity?

You cannot expect to make any real progress if you are continually changing directions. Your thoughts and actions have negligible effect when they act against each other.

So seek to point all your thoughts, all your actions, in the same positive direction. Let the individual moments of your life reinforce and support each other.

The positive effect can be tremendous. By being consistent, the same actions that once had no effect suddenly start to have a real impact.

You already have sufficient time, energy and resources to get where you want to go. Just be consistent, point all your efforts in the same direction, and that is where you’ll go.

— Ralph Marston
