A life of ease is a difficult pursuit.

Live what you are

When you know that what you’re doing is right, what can possibly stop you? Believe in what you’re doing, and you transcend doubt. Excuses become just a quaint and amusing memory when you have an unshakable belief in the value of your efforts.

The things you previously categorized as “good” or “bad” all take on a new definition -- opportunity. Everything serves to move you forward, when your commitments and efforts are in step with your convictions.

The way to truly believe in what you do, is to do what you truly believe in. It is a waste of time and energy to try and adjust your beliefs to fit your circumstances. How can you accomplish anything when you’re working against yourself? Effectiveness, success and fulfillment come when you adjust your circumstances to fit your beliefs. That is most certainly a challenge, and one that is well worth the effort.

— Ralph Marston
