Ya Gotta Work!

“The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Words to bear in mind as you plod on towards your goals. Honestly, I first heard this quote in the lyrics of a song by dancehall recording artiste, Beenie Man, and while it made sense it was not as relevant to me then as it is now.

I intend to attain my goals in life. My dreams are big and my determination even bigger. I know they will not be handed to me on a silver platter. And I know that my hard work will make the reward that much sweeter.

I hope that you can draw similar magnitude of inspiration from the quote above as I have.
