Hidden but in plain view

The most valuable secret of success is that there is no
secret. Success comes not from seeking to uncover some
exotic hidden formula, but rather through persistently
following through on opportunities to create value.

The best shortcut to achievement is to avoid looking for a
shortcut. Simply get busy and do the work required, for that
is the quickest way to reach the goal you've set.

The most effective way to handle what must be done is to do
it. Procrastinating, agonizing, complaining and avoiding
will only prolong the task and add greater difficulty to it.

Life is not always easy, and wishing for things to be easier
will usually make them more difficult. The time-tested
strategy for making life truly easier is to go ahead and
work through each challenge as it comes along.

By so doing, you grow stronger, more capable, more effective
and more experienced. You put yourself in position to live
life on your own terms.

The route to success is no secret, and is in fact hidden in
plain view. Use every opportunity to make a difference, and
you'll go precisely where you choose to go.
