Celebrate the consequences

Do you pay a price for your actions, or do you reap great rewards from them? Do you fear the consequences of what you do, or do you eagerly await those consequences?

It all depends on the actions you take. The destination at which you arrive is determined by the direction in which you most consistently travel.

Instead of cursing the negative consequences, simply avoid the actions that cause them. Instead of wistfully wishing in vain for the things you seek, just take the actions that will bring those things into your life.

Everything in your life is the result of one thing or another. You can’t avoid consequences, yet you can determine which ones you get.

Put yourself in a position to celebrate the consequences. With positive purpose, focus, effort and persistence the very best of life’s results can be yours.

Most of what happens to you happens because of you. Use your actions to move solidly toward those consequences that you’ll delight in celebrating.

— Ralph Marston
