Let your efforts flow

8 08 2005


Ttrying too hard can often be as unproductive as not trying at
all. Pushing yourself too hard sends an unspoken yet
powerful message that you lack confidence in your own

Instead of forcing your efforts, seek to simply let them
flow. Instead of being consumed with thoughts of how much or
how little progress you’re making, focus on the real
substance of the effort.

When you wander a little off track, there’s no need to
despair or to work yourself up over it. Put that energy into
pointing yourself back in the right direction.

Real progress will come at the pace at which you can give
yourself fully and sincerely to the effort. If you attempt
to rush the process, you may accumulate some meager tokens
of success, but you will fall short of achieving real
success itself.

Life already has enough pressures. There is no need to add
more by pressuring yourself. Relax and let your efforts
flow. That is how you can be your very best.

— Ralph Marston
