Success starts with us.
The story that constitutes our success starts by accepting that we have an everlasting fortitude. A fortitude that will allow us to understand our reality, while working towards realizing the potential of our dreams.
It is axiomatic that success comes with hardships. That being able to handle pressure, and perform under it, will enable us to celebrate our successes. That to achieve our goals and ambitions comes with sacrifice. It comes with dedication. And that the honor of our successes, lies in the fruits of our labor.
As we approach the new year, don’t underestimate the ability to survive. The honor in wiping your sweat. The adage of staying your course by not getting to high on successes, but never to low on failures. For failures and misfortunes are often the geneses of the greatest stories ever told.
If a tree can continue to stand tall amidst changes of seasons, winds, frosts, storms, and sunshine for millennia – then so rings true with us.
With all of this said, success starts with us.
Don’t be afraid to look back, for then we don’t have a past.
Don’t be afraid to look forward, for tomorrow is a day yet to be touched.
And most importantly, seize “your today” for the present is synonymous with “your moment”.
We all aspire for a better future. We all want to succeed. Therefore, in this coming year, let us be humble in our learnings, modest in our actions, accepting in our failures, celebrative in our successes, and restless in our journey.
For, success starts with us.
