Know why

Rather than thinking of reasons why you can’t, think of the reasons why you must. Instead of focusing on your problems, focus on your purpose.

There will always be challenges in any endeavor. Yet for every challenge, there is a way to get through it.

The secret comes in knowing why. With a strong enough sense of why, anything can be done.

What specifically do you wish to do, and why do you wish to do it? Dig down deeply into the reasons why, for that is where you’ll find the energy, the persistence, and the commitment to carry you forward.

Don’t be afraid to desire it, and to explore your own personal, meaningful reasons. By understanding why, you’ll have what you need to figure out how, and to make it happen.

Know why, and watch the challenges melt away. Know why, and it will be.

— Ralph Marston
