Yes, risk-taking is inherently failure-prone. Otherwise it would be called sure-thing-taking.

Progress you can make

The fact that life can be challenging is a given. Don’t use it as an excuse.

Sure, there are many reasons why you cannot do this or that. With diligent work you can overcome many of them.

If the way is blocked, look for another way. Rather than blaming someone or something else, rise to a new level of responsibility.

When there’s no time available in the morning, carve out some time in the evening. When resources are scarce, discover how creative and innovative you can be.

Yes, life is difficult and unfair. Don’t magnify that unfairness by letting it stop you from doing the good things you can do.

When the sun comes up, even if it’s obscured by a dark storm cloud, get to work. Whatever progress you can make is infinitely better than no progress at all.

— Ralph Marston
