Courage is the mastery of fear-not the absence of fear.

In good time

Are you looking for instant results? Then you’ll likely put forth great effort and expense while encountering much frustration, with no guarantee that you’ll reach your goal.

There is a much more reliable and easily accessible way to achieve the results you seek. It is with patience.

Instead of fighting against time and making time your enemy, use time as your friend. Instead of being resentful that you can’t have it all now, be thankful that you can savor the process of working your way toward a meaningful goal.

To obtain anything of great value, you must provide great value and exert great effort. Spreading that effort over a reasonable amount of time is a key to dependable success.

Rushing through life is neither enjoyable nor effective. Slow down, spend your time and resources wisely and thoughtfully, and enjoy the journey.

With your efforts steady and consistent, have the patience to let life unfold at a sustainable pace. And the results you seek will surely come to you in good time.

— Ralph Marston
