You can only change the world little by little. You can’t change it instantly and make an overnight success of yourself. Of course, nowadays these limits are changing.
But please know if it is taking time to come around that is the way of the world. Most of the overnight successes of the past have been forgotten because if it’s a video on youtube, someone’s watched it once or a few times but after they’ve done it they’ve done it. You may feel you want that kind of success but it’s much better to work towards something, than just to have it whether you’re appreciative or not. Then at least if you get it you will be more thankful because you’ve been through some really hard times and even doubting it would happen.
Everybody has hard times. No life is plain sailing. So always be considerate. You can’t know what’s on someone’s mind or where they are on their journey. How far have they come? How far do they have left to go? No one can say because honestly no one knows. When you get to wherever you’re going, you tend to forget how many sleepless nights you longed for it etc.
You can go through a range of emotions at any given time, emotions are unpredictable. You can be feeling great at one time, then awful the next. Life has a way of knowing when we’re feeling good and then coming down like a tonne of bricks. But this is to test us. How strong is your faith or belief in yourself? Will you get through it, and add it to a number of antidotes’ or let it defeat you? I think I know how we should/want to answer that question. So the question is, what are you going to do?
