Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.

Decide exactly

Give yourself a specific, meaningful task. Give yourself a compelling reason to put forth effort and a readily accessible object for that effort.

Good intentions that are vague have no value, no ability to get you moving. Make your intentions clear, detailed, and relevant to your immediate situation.

When you know exactly what to do there’s an excellent chance you’ll do it. Capitalize on the fact that you’re goal-oriented by nature, and provide yourself with a precise goal.

Give sufficient thought to your choice of intention, but don’t get lost in that thought. Once you’ve identified an appropriate course of action, begin to take that action.

If for some reason your intention isn’t the best idea, by putting it into action you’ll find out soon enough. When, on the other hand, it is a good idea, you’ll be well on your way to making it happen.

You’re skilled at making a difference, so put that skill to use. Decide exactly what to achieve, and give yourself the great experience of getting it done.

— Ralph Marston
