Would you persuade, speak of interest, not of reason.
-- Benjamin Franklin


Monday, December 20, 1999


The joy of accomplishment makes most other pleasures seem empty and trivial by comparison. Anything you accomplish by your own effort is truly yours, and the delightful fulfillment it brings can never be taken from you.

While others fight over the meager crumbs of getting and possessing and upholding appearances, set your own direction on the much less crowded road to true accomplishment. Rather than worrying about what you’ll get, focus on what you can create.

Your mind, your body, your five senses make you ideally suited and equipped for overcoming obstacles and accomplishing things. How have you used your valuable skills and resources today? What things of value are you creating right now?

Want to feel great about yourself? Then set a goal and accomplish it. Make full use of your incredible ability to make a difference, and experience how great life can be.

— Ralph Marston
