Every successful person
has a painful story. Every painful story has a
successful ending. Let us accept the pain and
get ready for success. We are only as strong as
we allow ourselves to be. Let us never get
discouraged, never give up because consistency
and dedication are the keys to success.
A tree that wants to touch the sky must extend
its roots into the earth. The more it wants to
rise upwards, the more it has to grow downwards.
So to rise in life, we must be down to earth,
humble and grateful.
successful person begins with two beliefs: that
the future can be better than the
present, and he/she has the power to make it so. I have learned that
successful people are humble and never think
they are better than anyone else. The secret is
to live a humble life that pleases God, not
people. Life is surrounded by people who judge
us day in and day out. They will talk about us
when we succeed and laugh at us when we fail.
They can make us or break us. We can love, we
can counterfeit faith, we can counterfeit hope
and the other graces, but it is very difficult
to counterfeit humility.
FROM A SMALL SEED A MIGHTY TRUNK
MAY GROW. Ė Aeschylus
I have also learned
to be grateful for all my blessings and to
accept everything, even my problems, with joy,
hope and positive attitude for they opened my
eyes to the good things I was not paying
attention or took for granted before. Yes,
happiness comes a lot easier when we stop
complaining about our problems and start being
grateful for all the problems we donít have.
So when life seems
like it is falling apart, let us not forget to
count our blessings. Whenever we are feeling
down, we often lose sight of what we have to be
thankful for in our life. But if we just opened
our eyes, we would see that life is not so bad
after all. It is the small things that count.
