One thing you must have realized by now is that success is not easy, nothing good in life comes easy.
You must prepare your mind that it is not going to be a jolly ride up the path of success. You will get bumbs, and sometimes some pretty bad once that will literally make you cry.
You will have to deal with the pains of doubts and betrayal from the people around you, at other times it will be pains from the system, or the difficulty along the way. And a few couple of times you will be disappointed that it’s taking too long. And more also, your health might fail you at certain points cos you’ve stretched it beyond what it can handle.
Martin Luther King Jr, while reacting to some of the pains he passed through said “As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course”.
Just like Martin, you will have two options – either to quit or continue.
It’s up to you. If you think your dream or goal is good enough, I believe you know what to do.
I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains ~ Anne Frank
When the pains come, always remember, the purest of gold have passed through the hottest temperature and this increases it’s beauty and value.
Someone once said “The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears and the kindest hearts have felt the most pain”.
You never really know what’s coming. A small wave, or maybe a big one. All you can really do is hope that when it comes, you can surf over it, instead of drown in its monstrosity ~ Alysha Speer
Just like the gold, the same outcome awaits you if you can navigate through the pains and follow your dreams.
I honour you.
