I’m sure you know people who’ve been VERY lucky in life. Despite never planning, making reckless decisions, jumping from one thing to the next, they somehow survived without a scratch.
It’s natural to be a bit envious of these folks. We want the easy life too – or so we think. Anyone can get lucky. There’s no skills in being lucky, and no one would consider that as greatness.
The person who perseveres through difficulties, who keeps going when others quit, who makes it to the destination through hard work -> that’s impressive, because it is the result of fortitude and resilience, not birthright or circumstances.
Keep Going! Success is on the way…
