A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.

Be real and be effective

The way to be passionate is to be honest. True passion comes from true purpose.

If you only pretend to be passionate, what have you really accomplished? You’ve merely managed to be ineffective at something you didn’t want to do anyway.

You have the power and the ability to do great things. It just makes sense to direct that power into what really matters.

Why waste your time faking it just so you can look good? You can use your time to follow a sincere and authentic path that will bring you the life you truly desire.

The best way to be is to be real. Anything else is certain to eventually bring frustration and disappointment.

Be real, be honest, and be willing to admit with your words and your actions what is truly important to you. Be real, and live at your most effective and fulfilled level.

— Ralph Marston
