Good morning y’all! Yeah, I know, it’s Monday morning and, already, you want to be back in bed. Here’s some #MondayMotivation to keep you forging ahead!
Let me tell y’all. No matter what you see online or on TV, at work, or wherever, there is no thing as a real overnight success. That’s why one of the things you have to let go of is comparing yourself to other people because you don’t know what they went through or how hard they worked to get to where they are right now.
This quote from retired soccer legend Pelé is so true. Success isn’t a coincidence. It’s no accident. It doesn’t just pop up after putting in a little bit of time behind the scenes. It comes with a lot of prayer, hard work, rejection, tears, networking, strength, and perseverance. A LOT. Trust me. And it’s constant. Once you even reach where you want to be, then you have to focus on staying there and continuing to advance. The struggle is very real, y’all.
But what keeps you going, ultimately, is true love and passion for whatever it is that you are doing. Once you find that, continue to work at it, invest in it, study it, and grow. The success will come, but you gotta keep pushing y’all!
