Value in the doing

Behind every fortune is someone who has labored long into the night to make it real.

Behind every important discovery is a person who often grew weary searching for it.

Behind the magnificent work of art is an artist who spent hour after hour, month after month toiling at tasks that were tedious and seemingly endless. Behind the beautiful, soaring music is a composer who carefully arranged each note, each pause, each crescendo into place.

Take heart. Your effort cannot help but pay off.

The fact is, your effort is the payoff. The fortune, the discovery, the work of art, and the music, as grand as they are, serve as mere tokens of the achievement.

The real achievement is in the achieving, and the real value is in the doing. Sincere, focused effort makes your life rich, even as you do it.

Make the effort and the reward is guaranteed. For the biggest reward is in the doing.

— Ralph Marston  July 21, 2008

Excellent inspirational message!  Now my thoughts that I want to keep close…

  • The real achievement……is in the achieving
  • The real value……is in the doing
  • The biggest reward……is in the doing
  • My effort……is the payoff

Why?  Because when we make the effort, the reward is guaranteed.  That’s the real achievement.  Not just a little effort mind you, the kind of effort that requires working to achieve.  What a great point!  Doing what it takes to get the reward.  Let’s set forth with our dreams MK sisters.  Let’s review our goals, make our plan, and work with effort to the reward(s) of our choice.  Consultants and Directors alike, let’s motivate and build our dreams!  The rewards await each and every one of us. 

PINK BIZ NOTE:  If you haven’t read Ralph Marston lately, it would be a great place to receive inspiration on a daily basis.  His messages speak volumes and often are just what we need to spur us on in our daily lives and work endeavors.  Visit his site today at or click on his name at the top of my header.  A wonderful resource indeed for anyone, at any hour, on any given day.  Enjoy!
