It is human nature to be jealous of others. However, before you even begin comparing yourself with others, think again. We all have different talents and gifts. Each of us is destined to be great. You may not be good in math but you can be an excellent artist. You may be poor in communication skills but you may be a good athlete. Just because you got bad grades in school, it does not mean that you will fail in life. You are more than your report card. You are talented. All you need to do is to find the genius within you.
Contrary to popular belief, success does not happen overnight. To achieve success, you must work for it every day, one step at a time. DON’T BE PASSIVE. Be pro-active in completing the small steps that will lead to your goal.
Show up to your work space every day; work hard and go the extra mile when you need to. Your hard work will get you where you want to be.
