The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.

Treasure the process

The way to get there is to keep going. The way to keep going is to treasure the process.

Even before you have reached the goal, you continue to have the experience of reaching toward the goal. That reaching is what creates the value you seek.

The work to get there can be tedious, annoying, and frustrating if you choose to see it as such. Yet there’s a much more empowering choice you can make.

You can decide to see the work in a positive light. After all, your perspective, your opinion of what you’re doing, is up to you.

You can remind yourself that in each little task is the opportunity to add value to the final achievement. That every moment you put into the effort is a moment spent on a worthwhile endeavor.

There’s a specific process that leads to whatever achievement you may desire. Treasure the process, and reach the achievement.

— Ralph Marston
