One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

You’re making progress

As long as you’re taking consistent, positive action, you’re making progress. At times, it may seem that you’re going backwards. At times, it will be frustrating when the results don’t come as quickly as you had hoped. Still, you are making progress.

Achievement is a process, not a single event. To achieve any goal, you must cover a lot of ground. You need to learn what works, and what does not work. You must explore possibilities, many of which will not turn out to be feasible. Still, with every action you’re making progress. Even the setbacks are necessary stepping stones on the path to success.

Keep up the good work. Keep up the effort. You’re well on your way by now. With every moment, you get closer. With every effort, you make progress, no matter what the short-term results. You’ve come a long way. Keep going.

— Ralph Marston
