Day 157: The Demand For Reaching Your Highest Goal.
In 1912, Christian Larson wrote and said that, so long as the man with ambition is a failure, the world will tell him to let go of his ideal; but when his ambition is realized, the world will praise him for the persistence and the determination that he manifested during his dark hours, and everybody will point to his life as an example for coming generations. This is invariably the rule. Therefore pay no attention to what the world says when you are down. Be determined to get up, to reach the highest goal you have in view, and you will.
This words were true then as they are today. If you are determined and are ambitious (apparently, so many people lack this) the society consider you somewhat a weird person.people will try to persuade you to let go and take up something else, what is easier to do and not what will threaten their own ego.
Once you achieve your success, everyone start to proclaim that they knew from the first time that you would succeed. When you were down struggling, few people stopped by to lend a helping hand or even offer kind words of support (what do you expect btw?).
If you are currently grinding, struggling and feeling very low and down, make an effort, all that you can and surround yourself with positive input. If you want to build a protective gear around you, go on. keep away from people who would love to derail you by their nasty remarks. When you fall, get up, dust yourself up, try again and keep walking untill you get to your destination. Be brave!
When you finally reach your goals, do not forget the people who were there for you while you were struggling. Do not forget to reward them with a gift of gratitude. For the others, wish them well (not sure if I should advise you to forget them), fair – weather friends, are no friends at all. Remember the Proverbs 18:24; There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.
