In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty.

Find your way

Don’t complain that something is blocking your path. Find a way over it, under it, around it or through.

Just because the work is difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Find a way, and you’ll absolutely make it happen.

You can’t expect to be told exactly what steps will get you where you want to go. Find joy and sweet fulfillment in the fact that it’s up to you to find your own way.

Don’t waste your time crafting elaborate excuses or seeking the pity of others. Invest your precious time in finding a way forward.

You might think it would be nice if someone else were to cater to your every need and whim. Yet what your spirit truly desires is to find its own way, and deep inside you know that.

You were born to find your own unique way through life’s richness of possibilities. Your treasures await, so get going right now.

— Ralph Marston
