Reach beyond yourself

The higher you aim, the higher you will go. Push yourself a little bit past what you know you can do, and you’ll discover new skills and abilities.

If it seems that you don’t ever get much done, maybe it’s because you’re not giving yourself enough to do. Make your dreams and ambitions big enough to be positively compelling.

Be genuinely thankful for how far you’ve already come, but don’t rest on your previous accomplishments. Honor and appreciate those accomplishments by using them as a starting point for even greater success.

You are intelligent, adaptable, creative, flexible and effective at getting things done. Fulfill your destiny and satisfy your purpose by giving yourself plenty of valuable, worthwhile things to do.

Delight in discovering how much more you can accomplish. Thrill to the challenge of moving successfully through new, uncharted territory.

Continue to reach beyond yourself. Know the joy and confidence that come from growing ever stronger.

— Ralph Marston
