The work you do

A special form of happiness it is to do a job well. You prove to yourself that you can, that you exist, that you make a difference, that you matter.

Leisure has its place and can offer certain pleasures. Yet it is work that resonates most deeply with the enduring reality of who you are.

That reality is one of great creativity and usefulness. Every effort advances you toward a future in which more value exists than in the present.

During each step along the way, work adds its positive dimensions to your experience. You start with purpose and intention, you continue with strength, and you finish with well-earned satisfaction.

As you apply focus, discipline, and persistence you gain new appreciation for what is, new confidence in what can be. You are engaged by the challenges, energized by the progress.

Throughout your existence is the ever-present magic of what’s possible. Continue to do the work that brings great possibilities to life.

— Ralph Marston
