If you want things to be different, perhaps the answer is to become different yourself.

Compelling purpose

Do you wish to have more energy? Then focus on a more compelling purpose.

Do you feel like you should be getting more done? Then give yourself a more enticing reason to do it.

Step for a moment outside your own frame of reference. Look objectively at the opportunity you have right here, right now, as the person you are.

Think of what matters to you, and then consider all you could do if you would just do it. Imagine the difference you can make if you will just make it.

Of course, there are all sorts of distractions, complications, challenges, and burdens. Yet you are fully capable of focusing on a purpose that will transcend them all.

Give yourself permission to see that purpose. And give yourself the push, day after day, to follow it with all you have.

— Ralph Marston
