Road to Success

To reach the port of success we must sail, sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it. But we must sail, not drift or lie at anchor –Oliver Wendell Holmes

You know what, there’s no such thing as smooth mountain on the road to success
There are times you will be depressed and stepped over, but you just have to keep going.
Cos, struggle and criticism are prerequisite for success
Pain and trial are prerequisite for the character lessons that must be learned if success is to be attained.
Success is often born in the cauldron of suffering and pain, where the abilities to maintain perspective and walk in determination are learned.

Somehow, deep within us, we know that if one is to reach greatness and acquire success, if one is to make a difference in one’s world, there must be an overall sense of direction.
There must be commitment, enthusiasm, and effort
There must be willing to go against the majority; to fight the tides of apathy and mediocrity.
To pursue with passion the reason we were created.

See, there’s simply not enough time for superficial, pedantic, and banal things to dominate our cognitive abilities. Therefore,
We need courage not cowardice
We need inspiration not just information
We need passion not pettiness
We will discover ourselves with solitude and soul searching, not superstition and soap opera
We will finally reach our destination of success with discipline and deep thinking, not dalliance and diversion.
