Let Your Efforts Flow: 08.10.05

Trying 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 efforts.

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
