Dare to be naive.

Are you willing?

What are you willing to have in your life? What are you willing to do with your time? How are you willing to spend your days and moments? What are you willing to accomplish?

For all the want to’s, need to’s, have to’s, consider this -- are you willing or are you not? Skill, determination, persistence, resources, or the lack thereof, will not matter nearly as much as your own willingness, or lack thereof.

Success, accomplishment and fulfillment all come down to one very clear and simple thing. And that is -- are you willing? If you are willing, it will happen because you’ll do whatever is necessary to make it happen. If you are not, it won’t.

Being willing is more than wishing or wanting. Being willing is making the commitment to take whatever actions are needed, to get past the obstacles that will surely block your way, to find a way, even if that way is not immediately obvious or easy.

Be willing, and it will happen.

— Ralph Marston
