This year, we celebrated the 127th year of Labor Day. As a token of appreciation, America celebrates its hard workers via a national holiday. Kudos to that. It takes much work, patience and perseverance to make this country generate the opportunity that it has. Although many are not at their ideal (see previous post about being a statistic), at least they can say that an opportunity is presented to put a roof over their heads, and take care of their family. The next step is to not settle in doing something you do not want to do, and go for your dreams.
Regardless, it takes hard work, which creates success. That is a concept which will never expire. The only thing for people to realize is that – for the most part – things are not given to you. It takes patience, dedication, and a “never give up” attitude.
Not only at your place of occupation, but apply this to all areas of your life. Your marriage, your friendships, your goals, your personal development. Understand that becoming better in any or all of these areas take time, but you cannot just be complacent in where you are and expect others to make you better.
You do the work, and bring in others to help you through the process. You’ll be better in the long run. Why? Because hard work pays off.
