We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

Make achievement happen

The ideal situation would be nice, but it’s probably not going to happen. Yet there’s plenty you can do with the situation as it is.

As you move forward, problems keep popping up to block you. Even so, there is always some amount of progress you can make.

The excuses sound good, but they don’t do you any good. Your best choice is to forget about the excuses and focus on the work you can get done.

Achievement happens not because of the circumstances you’re in. Achievement happens because of what you do to make it happen.

Achievement happens not because some lucky break has made it easy for you. Achievement happens because you do the difficult work to bring it about.

Wishing for a more favorable environment is just wasting the good time that’s now available to you. Choose instead to use that time, to learn the lessons, to do the work, and to make achievement happen.

— Ralph Marston
