The way out
The way out of disappointment is through effort. The way out of worry and anxiety is through effort.
The way to respond to unfairness, injustice, tragedy and misfortune is with effort. The way to get beyond the obstacles standing in your path is with effort.

It is truly amazing what some good, sustained effort can do. It will make you wonder why you didn't get started sooner.

When you are discouraged, make a little positive effort and your attitude will remarkably improve. When you are weary, make a little positive effort and it will energize your spirit.

Sitting around worrying, complaining, being angry and frustrated will do nothing to improve the situation. Start to take effort, though, and you enter a whole new positive, productive frame of mind.

With effort, there is a very real and attainable connection between where you are and where you would like to be. Make the effort, and work your way out into the bright light of achievement.
