Get purposeful

Even the most luxurious conditions can be nearly impossible to endure if there’s no purpose toward which you are moving. Even the most painful, desperate conditions can be relatively easy to endure when there’s an important, meaningful reason to do so.

Purpose makes all the difference. The crucial factor in any undertaking is not what you must do, but why you are doing it in the first place.

Yes, doing the work is absolutely necessary. And what will get the work done is a clear and unambiguous knowing of why you’re doing it.

If you’re having trouble focusing, don’t merely strive to improve your focus. Work on solidly connecting with your authentic purpose.

Anything is possible, but what you seek is not just anything. What’s possible for you is what’s truly meaningful to you.

Knowing what you seek and why, is what will relentlessly drive you to reach it. Get clear, get honest, get purposeful, and you cannot help but get it done.

— Ralph Marston
