Nothing comes easy. At least for the 99% of us.
We’re all born with a “story”: a parent who doesn’t fulfill his/her responsibilities; a family that doesn’t support our dreams; living with prejudice; it could be anything.
However, we’re all being pushed towards a common trajectory: forward. Whether we like it or not, not everyone sympathizes with our story. Some ridicule it and some praise it. Regardless, this temptation to play the victim in our stories could easily result to us to stop trying. And we must always avoid that from happening.
When we stop trying, we stop the process of continually refining ourselves. When we stop trying, we influence those around us to stop trying themselves. When we stop trying, we deny those who could benefit the most from our work to fully enjoy the talents which God has gifted us. That is tragic.
Let’s not stop from adding beauty in this world. When failure is the result from trying, it simply propels us to the direction of success. Let’s keep trying.
