The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

You know

It’s easier to think that you’ve missed a big opportunity, than it is to take advantage of that opportunity. It’s easier to think that you’ve done all you can, than it is to make just a little more effort. It’s easier to think that you know all the answers, than it is to learn something new. It’s easier to think that things won’t get any better, than it is to put forth the effort to make them better.

It’s easier to think, than it is to do. And way too many people choose the easy way out. But not you.

You know better. You know there is plenty of opportunity, if only you will work for it. You know that just a little extra effort can make the difference between a fortune and a failure. You know that the smartest people are those who have the most to learn. You know that things will get better when you are committed to making them better.

You know how life works. You know what you want. You know you can do it. Sure, it’s easy to think that you can’t or you won’t. But you know what to do. You know, and you will. Today would be good, right now would be better.

— Ralph Marston
