Make yourself willing

You never would have thought you could do it but you did. Because you really wanted to, or you had no other choice.

What other things might you be able to accomplish, that you never thought you could? What profound challenge, what deep-seated desire can you set before yourself that will energize your spirit and activate your skills?

When you are unwilling, nothing much happens, no matter how well-positioned you are. When you are sufficiently willing, pretty much anything is possible even if you’re burdened by severe disadvantages.

Determine exactly what would make you willing. Fill your mind and your heart with all the details of how much better it will be than any alternative.

Put the whole of yourself into an intimate and continuing relationship with your reason why. Make yourself willing.

Amaze yourself again with all the good things you can get done. Make yourself willing, fill your existence with purpose, and bring to life all the achievements you are meant to achieve.

— Ralph Marston
