I am long on ideas, but short on time. I expect to live to be only about a hundred.

Don’t worry

Don’t worry about how long it will take, or what others will think of you, or how difficult it will be. Just get busy and do it.

Instead of wasting your time and energy on worry, use that time and energy for action. Instead of visualizing what you don’t want, create what you do want.

Of course there will be challenges, painful mistakes, embarrassing moments and difficult efforts. But instead of worrying about them and making them worse, just go ahead, work your way through them and get them over with.

Worry fills you with doubt, and doubt eats away at your dreams. Choose instead to take action, with so much relentless determination and intensity that there’s no room for worry.

Even though there will always be problems, you are truly capable of greatness. Imagine yourself fulfilling that greatness, starting right now from where you are with what you have.

Then jump enthusiastically into the journey. Forget the worries, and bring your best possibilities to life.

— Ralph Marston
