One thing I have learned in my few years of life, that has led me to success in most of my endeavors, that keeps me going and pushing my way forward even when everything else around me will suggest giving up; is the fact that I know and understand that no matter how dark the night might be, the day will surely come.
It really does not matter how down you might be today, you can be up on the highest peak tomorrow if only you keep pushing and fighting for the future you desire without giving up. I know most times it is not easy, you just feel like throwing in the towel. But knowing that to be successful in life you don’t have to operate by feelings, will keep you pushing forward in those rainy days.
Dear friend, I want you to know this fact that just because you failed today does not mean you can never succeed. Just because you did not get the position or opportunity you think you desire today, does not me you will not get a better and greater opportunity tomorrow. I have lived my life learning to fight for what I believe in, pushing myself against all odds and at the end of the day I overcome.
It does not matter who believes in you or who does not believe in you. The greatest harm you can do to yourself is not to believe in yourself. Do not allow the negativity of others to poison your positivity. Learn to keep your head above the waters even in the flood. Don’t be discouraged because of your background, where you were born or the financial status of your family. Your race or gender is not and can never be a disadvantage in life, use it to your benefit!
I was not born with a golden spoon. I never had the luxuries children of my age had. I never knew what it meant to go on vacations or holidays. My vacations were to walk miles every day after school under the hot scorching hands of the sun to the farm. Working on the farm till night and walking back miles home to do my assignment and prepare for the next day at school.
Well, someone might say “you had a very bad or hard life growing up. That was the worst environment to grow up in.” Yeah, that will be your opinion but as difficult and hard as it might have been at the time, it is only thanks to that upbringing that I am who I am today and who I am becoming tomorrow. I did not give up because I was not born with a golden spoon. I rather fought so hard to get one for myself and that is exactly what I did and continue to do daily.
Dearly beloved friends, decide today never to give up until you win. If you were not born with a golden spoon, go get one for yourself. Whatsoever you desire to become in life, you already have all it takes right inside of you. Take advantage of it and be the best you can be. Never compete with anyone or use another person as your standard. Compete only with yourself and yourself alone. Make sure you are better today than you were yesterday. You can be anything you want to be in life, if only you don’t give up.
SEE YOU AT THE TOP!!!
