Each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavor ought to be to set off that spark in one another.

Desirable place to go

You can do more than you think you can do, if you will start thinking you can. You can reach higher than you’ve chosen to reach, if you will choose to do so.

There are obstacles you must move past, and some of those obstacles are in your own expectations. Raising your expectations won’t magically make things happen, but it will stimulate you to make more things happen.

If you expect you can’t, you won’t. If you expect you can, you give birth to the possibility.

There’s no way around the fact that achievement requires focused effort. Your expectations put you in the frame of mind to make that effort.

Expectations also open your eyes to opportunities you never would have otherwise seen. And expectations set your imagination to work.

Positive expectations give you a desirable place to go. Then, you can put forth the effort to follow where they lead.

— Ralph Marston
