The bad stuff

Don’t let all the bad stuff get to you. Let all the bad stuff amuse you, inspire you, teach you, and empower you.

Achievement is built on inconvenience. Achievement is built on interruptions.

Achievement is built on disappointment. Achievement is built on frustrations, problems, distractions, mistakes.

The moment to moment results you get are important. Yet who you are, and the attitude you possess, that’s much more important in the long run.

When your efforts fail to bear fruit, that’s not the end of the world. On the contrary, it’s another step toward your eventual success.

Rather than judging or blaming or complaining, persist in finding a way to do what you’ve chosen to do. See everything that happens for what it is, an opportunity to move forward.

— Ralph Marston
