When it comes to success, you do what is required. Nothing worthwhile has ever been easy. Some are just willing to work that much harder than others.
Those who gave up will be your worst critics. Since they could not do it, you should not even bother. Your triumph will only remind them of their despair.
Use all of the resources at your disposal. Focus on gaining an edge over the competition. They might not be your enemies, but they are your opponents.
Understand what you bring to the table. Be aware of your weaknesses and how you can turn them around. There are a great many ways to get results.
You get out of life what you put into it. Those who take shortcuts tend to wind up lost. The easier the path may seem, the harder the destination will be.
In the midst of it all, never lose sight of who you are. A gain can ultimately be a loss. Those who give up themselves learn how hollow a victory can be.
