Embrace the consequences

Everything you do has consequences. Whether your life is full of disappointment or whether it is full of joy, it is largely the result of the actions you take.

Does that disturb you? Does it sound like bad news? If so, then you may want to re-evaluate your actions. One the other hand, if it thrills and excites you, then you’re probably even now following a course of action that will lead you steadily toward the ideal life you desire.

What are you doing right now to follow your dreams? What actions have you taken today to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself? What is your heart’s desire, and how are you using your energy to achieve it?

Think for a moment how absolutely great it is that your actions have consequences. Every great thing that has ever been accomplished has been a consequence. Achieve whatever success you desire by making your own consequences work for you.

— Ralph Marston
