Pick yourself up

If your efforts fail to bring the results you intended, don’t get discouraged. Get busy, adjust, and make an even greater effort.

Positive feedback and positive results are good, helpful, nice, but not essential. You can be positively motivated by disappointing results too.

Life is not fair, and complaining that life is not fair won’t change anything for the better. What will make things better is to persist in what you do.

Sooner or later you will pick yourself up and get yourself going again. You might as well make it sooner.

Let go of judgments about whether it’s easy or hard, inconvenient or complicated. Just look ahead, toward what you wish to achieve, and take the first step.

After you stumble, the way to feel better is to feel yourself taking action. Go ahead, and bring on that good feeling as soon as you can.

— Ralph Marston
