The truly successful are not those who have only known admiration and congratulations.

This honor is reserved for those that have known misery on a very personal level,

yet never chose to forfeit in the face of such seemingly never-ending peril.

****************************************************************************************

While overcoming adversity is remarkable in itself,

it is equally remarkable for those who fail consistently,

yet still keep trying nevertheless.

****************************************************************************************

Oftentimes our goals can be seen taunting us from across the road,

only to disappear the closer we get.  Do not feel frustrated by this,

simply agree to accept what is, that your goals are there, they are in sight,

but they just are not quite mature enough to greet you

with the civility and professionalism you expect from yourself

****************************************************************************************

As strange as it may sound, sometimes it is best to try and deceive your self,

thereby freeing the road from those meaningful distractions, the kind that appear everywhere.

These are those that have the uncanny ability to keep inner truth buried behind all of the other stuff in daily life.

 

By purposely adding a touch of self-deception, you will be, in essence, confusing yourself, your goals, dreams

and aspirations.  Where before, they knew they could easily hide themselves behind the daily distractions

we all deal with and feel obligated to pay attention to, but now, your goals et al, will not know where to hide or

which distraction to hide behind, thereby, increasing the likelihood of meeting them up close and personal.
