How many of great potentials have you known? Where did they all go? If people of great potential stop, it’s because they don’t build on their victories. There are two distinct times when a person is most likely to quit; after a mistake or after a victory.do
Once you are moving you can keep moving. Does Michael Jordan stop shooting after making the first basket? Did John Grisham quit writing after his first best –seller? Successful people know that each victory buys an admission ticket to a new challenging opportunity.
One of the greatest benefits of success is the opportunity to do more. “Opportunities multiply as they are seized” (John Wicker). The more you do, the more you can do.
“Perhaps it is a good thing that you haven’t seen all your dreams come true. For when you get all you wish for, you will be miserable. To be forever reaching out, to remain unsatisfied is a key to momentum” (North Carolina Christian Advocate). I’m not suggesting that you don’t stop and smell the roses along the journey. Just don’t stay so long past the victory of the blossom that the petals have dropped, the limbs have been pruned and all that’s left is the thorns.
The first step towards going somewhere significant is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are. When you have a victory, comfort and money will come but don’t confuse comfort with happiness and money with success.
It’s not what you get that makes you successful; rather, it is what you are continuing to do with what you have got that’s a better yardstick. The person who is satisfied with what he has done will never become famous for what he will do.
Remember this your lifetime through-
Tomorrow, there will be more to do
And failure waits for all those who stay
With some success made yesterday. ………………..
