Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Do more

Go beyond what you must do, and do more. That’s where you will start to encounter life’s richness.

Don’t settle for just getting by. For you have so very much more to give, and to live.

When you’ve reached the finish line, that’s no time to stop. Take a victory lap or two, and delight in the pure, sweet enjoyment of all the good things you can do.

Then set your sights on another, more valuable and ambitious goal. Reach beyond what’s comfortable and necessary, into the realm of the best that is possible.

Just a small extra effort can produce significantly greater results, taking them from ordinary to extraordinary. Leverage your efforts by going above and beyond.

When the work is done, take advantage of the opportunity to do more. And quickly put yourself far out in front.

— Ralph Marston
