Convince yourself

The most challenging part of any achievement is continually convincing yourself to keep working on it. When you are truly convinced to do it, you will take the necessary actions to make it happen.

Give yourself a compelling reason to achieve, stay connected to that reason, and you will indeed achieve. You can be magnificently effective when you choose to be.

If there are things you must know, you can learn them. If there are resources you must have, you can locate them.

Convince yourself to achieve, and you will find a way. Life unfolds in accordance with your most powerful and meaningful commitments.

It is helpful to be able to persuade others, yet the most important person you must convince is you. Unless you sincerely convince yourself, no amount of persuasion of other people will be able to move you forward.

Convince yourself that what you are doing is right and worthwhile. Then delight in the fulfilling journey of making it happen.

— Ralph Marston
