“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele
Find meaning in success.
Success is a big word not most people understand. Perhaps it is a word we all know and something we all covet but what it is about is often lost in most of us.
Working hard to achieve our dreams and goals is not always comfortable and appealing. No matter how much we want something, it does not often work out the way we imagine, and this is when it begins to be difficult. While it can be fun when it is going well, it is frustrating when you face challenges after challenges.
But why is the journey worth it, even when it does not necessarily always work out based on what we expect? It is because when we achieve what we want, when goals and dreams have become a reality, all the hard work and challenges will have paid off and more.
It is not always easy. It may not going to be easy for you but what is guaranteed is that it will be worth it. Perhaps you may not succeed the first time but the lessons learned and experience gained will be invaluable.
That is the beauty of it. You will go through hardships, and you may even consider giving it all up, but once you have overcome them, everything else comes easy, success included.
In life, a lot of things happen, and because of these things, we become stronger and better than we ever were. This is what makes life worth living and discovering. The same goes with success. The harder we work and the more persistent we become despite the hard lessons, the more satisfying victory would be.
Sometimes, it takes a small step, and other times, it takes removing a boulder to get where you want to be, but it does not matter. What matters is getting there and conquering what is impossible.
May your journey to success begin today.
