Michelangelo said, “If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem wonderful at all.” This is from a person who painted the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling. It took him four years to do it. Lying on his back for four years.
Everyone who has achieved anything worthwhile has undergone some hardship. It seems a bit unfair that you must deal with adversity or difficulty to be victorious. Well, fairness and success are not best friends. The road to victory is often paved with at least a few bumps and plagued with some potholes. Occasionally, you will do everything right and still wind up battered and bruised. Is it unfair? Yes, but again, fairness has nothing to do with success.
Success requires you to endure days, months, or even years of training, sacrifice, or challenges. Getting ahead in the world requires you to be hit or even plagued with unfair circumstances and yet keep moving forward. Motivational speaker and author, John C. Maxwell, said something to the effect of “success is a journey, not a destination.” How right he is.
Along your journey to success, you will need to stay positive. You will need to remain motivated. One way to keep your spirits up and motivation high is by having a solid support network. Family, friends, and associates are great resources and motivators. Unfortunately, sometimes these very same folks can be distracting and discouraging. They might have good intentions, but their good intentions will not help you get ahead. Not even your good intentions will help you. In order to succeed, you must take action. Placing one foot in front of the other, over and over again. You have to keep going regardless of how tired you are, how much you have on your plate, and what life throws at you. That’s the only way you are going to cross your desired finish line or achieve your goal.
All this makes sense and you’ve probably heard it before. So, what exactly is going to help you get ahead in this world? What’s going to keep you motivated and taking those necessary steps? How do you keep taking action? Motivation. Daily motivation. Success quotes are a great way to keep you uplifted every day. Success quotes are a great pick me up.
