It Takes Time

Life has its ups and downs, does not it? Unfortunately, it looks like sometimes the reverses are more frequent and last longer than the ups. It’s rather easy to get into a funk and shed our groove through one of these downs, is not it? Sometimes the downs appear terrible when we’re right in the midst of them. However, we must be patient and have faith as this is the stage where we are just about to break from our downward pattern and start an upward growth spurt.

During a few of my most dreadful times, times which I did not believe I deserved by the way, I learned some incredibly powerful secrets. Regrettably, at the time I did not understand what success secrets I had been studying. During these demanding times I needed to have faith. Something else that helped me get through these rough times was realizing that there were people counting on me to succeed. Taking me from this equation and putting us into it’s a powerful motivator that helps us get through rough times.

These strong lessons learned from the tough times will seldom avail themselves to us in the time they are occurring. Regrettably, these secrets of success require a lengthy time for us to really understand. That is why I call them secrets. And trust me when I say that there are still a few secrets from my previous hard times which have not fully shown themselves to me yet. Well, at least not in a way yet that allows me to completely understand the lessons in the hardship I had to survive.

Now adolescents, go learn, lead, and put the way to a better world for all of us. Do not forget that it takes time; but do not worry as you are going to get there, and you will get there in better shape than you think, while taking some fantastic life lessons. And once more, thanks in advance for all that you do, and everything you will do…
