“Put your head down and work hard. Never wait for things to happen, make them happen for yourself through hard graft and not giving up.” – Gordon Ramsay
Many people, not everyone, keep saying that I was not able to do because of him or her OR I was not able to get it because that happened. But really why are you blaming your own lack of enthusiasm and lack of perseverance and lack of commitment on other people or other things.
You need to understand that it is all on you. Don’t you think that the top athletes or the top celebrities feel sick? Don’t they face failures? Don’t they get hurt by others? Aren’t they berated by people? Everyone, literally everyone, at some point of time is hurt or is penalized but the point is what comes after that. What people do after they listen to the hate speeches or when they realize the betrayal of others.
Do they break down? DO they give in? Do they say ‘no more’? No. They understand what had happened, understand the mistake and learn from it. And THEY KEEP MOVING FORWARD. No matter the circumstances, they move ahead. That is the only secret to success. Nothing else, nothing more.
You ought to do whatever takes you closer to your goal, till it is morally correct. You need to keep trying till you achieve that one lifetime opportunity. And what after that? You take in the crowd, showcase that glamor of yours and keep working hard. That’s what means to be truly dedicated.
That’s what is achievement.
And that comes at a cost. You need to sacrifice those weekend parties or friends unions, or those binge watching and cola sips. So be mindful of what you want, and be mindful of what it takes to reach there. Because if you don’t know that, you will never be able to get there.
