History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.

Begin and continue

The problem is not the problem. The problem is that you let the problem stop you.

It’s not a lack of preparation that holds you back. It’s not an absence of passion, or resources, or opportunity, that keeps you from achieving.

The only things that can hold you back are your failure to begin and your failure to continue. Fortunately those factors are completely within your control, right this moment.

Begin, and you’ve opened up a way forward. Continue, work through each challenge as it arises, and you’ll get where you intend to go.

Achievement begins when you take responsibility for it with your actions. Achievement happens when you follow through on that responsibility.

Ultimately achievement boils down to what you do. Begin the work, continue until it’s done, and you can make many good things happen in this world.

— Ralph Marston
