“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” These lines are from Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare.
However I firmly believe in doers and not on people who are waiting for luck or destiny to strike the chord to make the day.
If hard work is the key to success most people would prefer the lock. Pick the key now and prove yourself with short term goals to achieve it.
There are no shortcuts in life or shortcut to success, Success or gain in life is always backed with a strong sense of commitment and hurdles which one crosses to accomplish every milestone in life.
It took 12 years to complete the The Taj Mahal with a strong work force of twenty thousand workers.
Burj Khalifa Dubai the tallest standing structure took 6 years to complete.
The Eiffel Tower took 2 years to complete.
Rome was not built in a day, all great work takes time and patience to complete and accomplish, and it is only dedication, patience and perseverance that leads us to achieve our ultimate goal. There are no gains in life without a pain and patience and the ability to stick on to it.
Thus start every day with the following thoughts:
- Push your limits, Take a stand and Leave your mark.
- Chase your dreams, conquer your fears.
- Take a risk, push your boundaries.
- Trust your instincts, Never give up.
- Prove your words, Right a wrong.
- Challenge yourself; Raise the bars Dream of a new high
It’s your life, it’s your attitude towards it, just beat all odds.
At last I would like to quote Swami Vivekananda:
See for the highest, aim at that highest, and you shall reach the highest.
