The golden key

Any advantage that you can quickly achieve, can also be quickly achieved by your competitors. Anything that comes to you with little or no effort, can abruptly be toppled.

The more time, effort and thought you invest in your endeavors, the more lasting and robust will be your results. Effort is not an annoyance to be avoided. It is a fundamental means by which you add value to your own life, to those around you, to the world in which you live.

Honest, focused effort is a golden key which unlocks the limitless treasure of possibilities. And it is available to anyone who is wise enough to use it. Are you claiming your share?

— Ralph Marston
