“NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT…”
Hello Friends! 🙂
I trust you had a good weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly! As the day dreamer that you know I am, I’m always thinking about something or other, and this time, I found my thoughts wondering to the generation that we live in now. We have a VERY empowered, strong youth- I mean look at the marches for education (#FeesMustFall), the power to stand and fight for what we deserve for our government… However, this is not about that.
This is about how the youth of today also happens to be very impatient. We want things to happen quickly, NOW, and we don’t understand that great things, great achievements take time. We want whatever we demand, money, fancy house, fancy car, to happen “overnight”, and get very impatient, despondent if it doesn’t. A very ironic difference to the empowered youth that we are. It is not a lie though-
“Nothing happens overnight, great things take time.”
So no matter how great the magic and gifts AND talent you possess, some things generally just take time. Some of the most famous people we know, only became successful in their forties or fifties, and here we are worrying about achieving greatness at 26/27/28? No…
Just remember, take it easy on yourself. Patience REALLY IS a virtue, and does pay off. Nothing great was every meant to happen overnight.
So be patient and kind to yourself. You are doing the best you can, the best way you know how. More importantly, you are NOT giving up, and that is the most IMPORTANT thing!! That is the first step to greatness, waking up and pushing, every single day.
DON’T GIVE UP.
The thing is, it’s either you wait or you settle for less. That is all there is to it. So be patient. It takes time.
Keep going! It’s a new week, a new chance to work on your greatness!!
Have a great week! 🙂
Live in Light and Love ❤
