Things take hard work and dedication, as well as time spent. Even then there are no guarantees. There are times when bad luck and trouble screw up all your well
intentioned efforts. Life isn’t fair. Get over it.
But, the reality is that if you want results, you have to work for them. Often for a long
time. That may be an unpopular message for many living in today’s instant gratification society. But it’s a message that a lot of people need to hear, pay attention to, and live by. If you already are, good for you. Continue on that critical path. If you aren’t, then figure out why not, what’s holding you back, and commit to make a change & embrace the journey. It’s time well spent.
