A dear student of mine was excitedly sharing with me the ecstatic feedbacks she was getting from her own students showing how her efforts were finally paying off.
After so many heart wrenching setbacks and challenges and picking herself up several times, results have started to kick in proving once again that persistence is the name of the game.
Hardly anyone gets offered success on a platter of gold, you really have to fight for it. The good news is that winning is sure if you do not give up. Winning is wired into your DNA you only just have to keep at it.
Many times your heart will fail when you realise you have to try again. The desire to go on may not even be there...but you just have to pick yourself knowing that the dream is for those who don't give up.
Keep Going. Your hardest times often lead to the greatest moments of your life. Keep going. Tough situations build strong people in the end.
You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.
The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense.
