“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” -Colin Powell
Although we would love for our dreams and goals to magically appear, that is highly unlikely. Achievement of our goals takes a lot of hard work and determination. It requires an investment of our resources (i.e. time, talent and treasure). Any one who has ever achieved anything of great value, has a story that includes investment, sacrifice, and hard work.
How committed are you to seeing your dreams come to pass? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Are you willing to go back to school or save money? Are you willing to put other things on hold to accomplish what’s most important? Are you determined to stay the course in the face of adversity and challenges? Are you willing to overcome fear in stepping into something new?
Whatever you are working towards, CAN happen! But know that your determination, sweat and hard work will pay off!
