Time and effort

Every achievement is built with time and effort. Be willing to make the effort, be willing to put in the time.

Getting something in an instant is getting something that has negligible value. Instead of expecting to get anything instantly, choose to put every instant to work.

No matter how far you wish to go, the way to start is always the same. Take the first step in the direction of your desired destination.

No single step will get you all the way there, yet every step moves you further along. Get good at taking steps, reliably, repeatedly, with enthusiasm and the highest of expectations.

The more you do to benefit your life, the better your life will be for you. The more you do to benefit the lives of others, the better others will be to you.

Choose your direction and go, then keep going. Every effort counts, every moment makes a difference, and here is one right now.

— Ralph Marston
