In most cases, success will always be an uphill battle. The key to making it to the top is persistence – one step at a time. How many times have you turned back around when the climb seemed too steep? Quitting is easy. Persistence calls for more discipline and determination. So before you give up on something, ask yourself have you exhausted every option and every move beforehand. Often time, the answer to that question is no, so the next big question is, how bad do you really want it?
When something means a lot to you it’s a lot easier to fight for what you want. Just remember, the amount of effort you put into something is reciprocal to what you get out of it. If you fail to give 100% to something and then decide to quit because you didn’t immediately get the results you were seeking, don’t think for a second that things will be different with the next project or goal. You can plan for days, months, and years and expect all of your plans to take shape in reflection to those plans but rarely does that happen. Be prepared for a few bumps in the road regardless of whatever else comes in your way, stay focused on your end goal and remember that success is not a straight line, but through all of the zig zags and winding turns, success will be waiting at the end for those who have shown determination.
See you at the top!
