A Child’s Dream Versus Adulthood
How many of you when growing up had visions of what life would be as an adult? Many of us dreamed of being rich and successful, with the ability to get wherever our hearts desire.
What many of us never anticipated was, how hard it would be for us to get to where we want to be. Many attained success because they were determined to do so and failing was not an option. They dealt with the struggles, obstacles, and disappointments that was a part of their journey.
Others started the journey and quit along the way because it got too hard for them. If you are at the point where you think of quitting, here is a word of advice in this quote.
Never forget how far you have come. Everything you have gotten through. All the times you have pushed on even when you felt you couldn’t. All the mornings you got out of bed no matter how hard it was. All the times you wanted to give up but got through another day. Never forget how much strength you have developed along the way.
Stay True to Yourself
In your quest for success, you may encounter failure. Do not allow it to deter you. Keep trying. You will get there although It may not be easy. The important thing is to start where you are and press forward. You may fall ten times but get back up and try again.You cannot surrender your dream to your challenges. The struggles and obstacles are there for you to overcome. It is these things that make you stronger, more confident and more determined to achieve your goal. As Maya Angelou said, “You may face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.”
Don’t Let Opportunities Pass You By
Every morning is a new opportunity to start over or to complete something that you have left undone. Do not take it for granted and do not put off what you can do today for tomorrow. Life passes by so quickly and missed opportunities seldom come around again. Make this a productive day; at the end of it you will feel a sense of accomplishment.”
