Rise above comfort

Comfort feels good, but it can water down your best possibilities. Today, rise above comfort and make some real progress.

Put new excellence and value in the world with your eagerness to take on difficult challenges. Step beyond what is easy and familiar and into the realm of high achievement.

Embrace responsibility, action, commitment. Be willing to say what must be said, to do what is good and right.

Comfort is pleasant, but too much comfort will melt you into complacency. Too much desire for comfort will imprison you in a situation where nothing gets done.

Enjoy life’s comforts but be careful not to let them hold you back. Find occasional refuge in comfort, then step again into the challenging world where you can get plenty of good work done.

You have much to offer, much to do, much to give to life. Rise above comfort, and achieve great things.

— Ralph Marston

Purpose is strong

Now your purpose is strong. Now you have the power, the will, to do something about what you care most about.

You sail right on past the interruptions, never losing focus. A clear sense of what you must do, of what you choose to do, makes you immune to the distractions.

Every moment matters, and your choices, your actions reflect that truth. There is great value to be created, meaningful experience to be lived, and you embrace each opportunity to do so.

You act with confidence, knowing that what you do is good, is right, and makes a positive difference in life beyond you. You persist, free of resentment, empowered by the highest expectations.

Today has arrived with its unique challenges and possibilities. And you are here to live it fully, with a purpose that is strong and an intention to be your best.

You’ve allowed that purpose to fill your awareness. As it energizes your thoughts and actions, you discover again and again how much good you can get done.

Filled with promise

Do the work to think for yourself. If you don’t think for yourself, life is nothing more than a stream of meaningless sensations.

Take full responsibility for the integrity of your life. It is everything, as your experience has shown you again and again.

Life is not easy. But oh, how good it can be when you do what is necessary to put real substance into it.

Give, give, give of yourself, authentically, generously, with enthusiasm, respect, joy. Listen, learn, watch, participate.

Commit to your highest vision, putting action and persistence behind that commitment. Remind yourself to live as though every moment matters, for indeed every moment does.

Do you realize how beautiful and filled with promise this day is? Once you do, nothing will be able to hold you back.

When the task is draining you

If you resent the work, you won’t do it very well, and besides, your resentment gains you nothing. What’s the point of that?

If you avoid the work, you make it more difficult when you eventually have to do it. That’s not such a great plan.

When you do the work halfheartedly, you’re using up your time but wasting an opportunity. Instead, put full attention and enthusiasm into it, and seize the opportunity to excel at it.

When you feel like the task is draining you, it’s not the task that’s doing the draining. It’s your attitude.

Improve your attitude, and you immediately improve the way you feel about what you’re doing. Improve your attitude, and the work flows much more smoothly.

No matter what you’re doing, you might as well do it in a positive frame of mind. It’s your time, it’s your work, it’s your life experience, so make the choice to make it your best.
