Keep yourself in action

When you seek to do something ambitious, there will be a certain number of unsuccessful attempts you make before finally getting it right. Go ahead and get those unsuccessful attempts out of the way as quickly as you can.

When the initial effort fails to yield the desired result, there’s no reason to get upset about it. Because it means you’re one attempt closer to the one that does get the result you want.

Though it seems natural to feel discouraged when you fall short of the mark, you’re actually moving yourself closer to the goal with every action. Keep going, keep learning, and you will soon get it right.

When you keep yourself in action, good things are sure to come of it. When you keep yourself in action, you’ll find your way to whatever you seek.

Make another phone call, write another paragraph, walk another mile, read another book, paint another picture, sing another song, and work another hour. Yes you can do it, and when you keep doing it, you work your way to spectacular results.

Don’t give up just when you’re a few attempts short of the achievement. Keep yourself in action, and make some great things happen.

— Ralph Marston
