So many times we dream about things we could do or be, only to give in too easily to despair and hardships on our journey. If we really want to succeed, we need to remain reliable to our dreams and ourselves through the good times and bad. Setbacks happen to everyone making success seem like smoke on the horizon…something we think we see but we’re unsure of how to go about achieving it. Or we know how to achieve it and stumbling blocks shorten and delay our stamina. To succeed, we must keep our dreams just ahead of us and continue to strive, to be reliable!
We hear overnight success stories and they do happen from time to time. More often though, we have to work tediously and slave for our dreams to become a reality. I am reminded of the saying “nothing in this world worth having comes easy.” The seemingly overnight success stories often are built on a platform of hard work behind the scenes. Even the singer who wins the reality show has spent years perfecting his/her voice. Overnight success is rare. Very rare.
Never give up. Unreliability and irresponsibility will kill a dream every time. Believe in yourself and know you can achieve whatever you believe you can. Then, if you persevere, chances are you will succeed…if you don’t give up.
And never be afraid to lend someone else a helping hand. You never know when the favor will come full circle to bless you in the end!
