The goal ahead

If you find it difficult to deal with where you are, look ahead toward where you’re going. Keep yourself focused on the goal at the end of the road, and you’ll find the strength to move steadily down that road.

When you continue looking ahead, even the difficult steps will seem lighter. The burdens of the moment become much more bearable when you know there is a purpose behind them.

Your dreams can pull you toward them if you’ll give those dreams a prominent place in your heart and your mind. Look ahead toward where you intend to go, and you’ll find that each challenge makes you stronger.

When your eye is on the goal, the distractions won’t be nearly so distracting. Your efforts will gain the immense power of focus when you’re always clearly aware of where you’re headed.

Your time, your energy, and your resources will get used no matter which direction you are looking. By choosing to look ahead, you get the highest return for the efforts you invest in your life.

Look ahead, toward the place you most want to be. The more you look, the faster you’ll move forward.

— Ralph Marston
