We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Power through

You must do what you must do, even if you don’t want to, even if you don’t feel like it. Power through and get it done.

Splash your face with the cold water of reality, of responsibility, of effort and effectiveness. Let it wake you to new possibilities, and let it push you to fulfill them.

You’ve worked too hard to ruin it all by letting yourself get soft and idle. Power through and get it done.

The effort itself is not the enemy. Your own reluctance is the enemy, and the good news is you have the power to overcome it.

Start with a small action to remind yourself you can. Immediately follow it with another and create an active, powerful momentum.

On this bright day with all its possibilities and obligations, power through to get the good work done. Make yourself ever thankful for choosing to act.

— Ralph Marston
