The secret is

There are lots of good, positive intentions, but not nearly as many positive results. What’s the secret for transforming your best intentions into the reality of rock-solid results?

The secret is, there is no secret. The best technique is to forget about finding a technique, and to live each moment with your purposeful intention as your guide.

Whatever you truly desire will pull you steadily toward itself. Let the desire supply the direction, while letting yourself supply the passion, the energy and the effort.

Instead of fighting the complexity, work your way steadily through it. Rather than resenting the difficulty of the effort, see the pathway provided by that effort, leading reliably toward fulfillment.

The way to make achievement meaningful, the way to make it yours, is to live it moment by moment. Live and act not from a static recipe, but from the dynamic, ever-growing power of your authentic intention.

Feel who you know you can be, feel how you know life can be, and then put the way you feel into action. The way of success is not something outside you that you must discover, but rather the beautiful essence within you that you’re able to share.

— Ralph Marston
