There is no elevator to success.
You have to take the stairs.
In order for anyone to be successful at whatever they desire to be successful at they have to take steps.
In order to get from point A to point B there is no fast track. You will have to take each and every step. Skipping steps will ultimately lead to failure. Each step is just as important as any other step. The steps you took before are just as important as the steps you are on and the steps you will be on in the future. Put complete focus on the step(s) you are currently on. The ones you took are over and the steps that are coming up are not here yet.
Success should not just be viewed as a one time goal or destination but that of a continuous journey. Success is an ever continuing endeavour. If you “obtain” success and you do nothing to maintain it or grow it you will soon fall back to unsuccessfulness.
Take a look at every successful person in history or present day and you will find that each and every person has followed certain steps to get them where they are today. Whether it was strategically planned or it just happened, there was steps that had to be taken. Every one of them completely necessary for that person’s journey. And what might be necessary for them may or may not be applicable to your journey. However there is always key elements that every successful journey must have. It’s like a law of the universe. You cannot control it. It just happens.
You will have to work hard. You will have to sacrifice. You will have to fail. You will fall down. You will get back up. You will be frustrated. You will be tempted to give up. You will succeed. You will persevere. It will all happen. So dig in and climb that stair case to success.
