We promise according to our hopes and perform according to our fears.

Challenge yourself

Go beyond what you know you can do. And just like that, you’ll know you can do more.

Go beyond again, and again. Grow past the limitations you’ve imagined, a little bit at a time.

Challenge yourself, and then do what it takes to meet the challenge. As you feel your strength increasing, resolve to add to it through your own efforts.

The way to have real confidence is to build it. Every day is your opportunity to make yourself more confident, competent and effective.

The skills and abilities that seem out of reach are really just a number of steps away. Challenge yourself toward them, and with each effort you move closer.

Push yourself beyond the familiar, beyond the comfortable, and into a higher level of ability. Feel the unique joy of breaking through your limitations again and again.

— Ralph Marston
