Start climbing

You have the potential to do many great things. Yet regardless of your potential, no matter how much you have going for you, nothing will come of it unless you take the actions necessary to make the most of your possibilities.

No matter how well prepared you are, no matter how intelligent, well-connected, or skillful you may be, the results you get depend on the actions you take. Positive thinking and positive focus will point you in the right direction. And positive, sustained effort is what will take you where you want to go.

You can see the summit, you can visualize yourself reaching it in glorious detail. Yet if you’re to actually make it happen, you must get up out of your chair and start climbing the mountain. You absolutely must take that first step, and then continue until the goal is reached.

You’re perfectly capable of it. You’ve got the potential and you have the desire. Now get up, get going, and make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
