I know that I haven’t updated in a LONG time and I really do feel bad. I’ve been super busy with school and not to mention working + other things in my life that I haven’t been able to update.
But, to the topic at hand, shall we?
Many people believe that if you don’t work hard, you’ll get success and everything you want. In my opinion, this is bullshit. No, it’s really a lie. Working hard for any reason, whether it is for money, success, etc., that is what is going to get you success. You shouldn’t expect to work less than someone else or not work at all, and then expect to get a lot of success. Life doesn’t work that way. You have to put a lot of effort into what you really want in life if you want to accomplish goals and do everything you’ve been wanting to do.
Now, I’m not saying the road to success is easy. This is where shit gets real, like REAL. There’s going to be a roadblock (or two, maybe three or more) and you are going to get to a point where you are going to be frustrated and you are going to want to give up. Many people, probably including celebrities, have gotten to this point. Do not and I repeat DO NOT GIVE UP. If you give up, someone should slap the living shit out of you. Giving up means two things: 1) the next person is going to take your spot and success away from you and b) you are throwing away what truly matters for reasons that shouldn’t matter.
Once you get to the point of where you are working hard and putting EVERYTHING into what you love, you are going to have so many rewards coming your way. Everything you have ever wanted and dreamed of is going to be right in front of you, not to mention you can also celebrate your success. Yes, this means treating yourself to dinner, going to movie, having a fun night out, whatever it is you consider celebrating.
But, celebrating your success doesn’t mean you have to stop working and not working hard for what you really want. Just because you got your start doesn’t mean you can’t or shouldn’t finish.
Bottom line is this, ladies and gents: play hard, but work even harder.
