“A successful man
is one who can lay a firm foundation
with the BRICKS
others have thrown at him.”
~ David Brinkley
Note from CoachO: A great thought leader I have come to admire is Ralph Marston. He has a very inspiring website called, “The Daily Motivator.”
The following is a post from his “Motivator” archives… Enjoy!
Don’t avoid the hard work. That’s where the greatest value is created.
Don’t be afraid of the difficult, complicated, challenging tasks. Once you get past the fear, you’re already past the most difficult aspect.
Relish the opportunity to do the hard work. For it is an opportunity to experience yourself being fully alive and effective.
Find real enjoyment and satisfaction in doing the difficult work. Get yourself hooked on how good it feels to make a meaningful positive difference.
It’s often assumed that hard work is best avoided. Yet when you avoid hard work, you cheat yourself out of the joy of accomplishment.
Seek out the hard work and you’ll find it’s not bad at all. Do the hard work, and transform each day, each moment and each effort into great value.
— Ralph Marston

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what.
Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
— Mark Victor Hansen
Every great and commanding moment in the annals of the world
Is the triumph of enthusiasm.
Nothing great was ever achieved without it!
