"Success is realized through many days of rising and falling"

Success is not accomplished one day; it is realized through many days of rising and falling. More importantly, success is the longest journey. A race cannot be won with haste.

Success is realized through many days of rising and falling

Success is like a hungry man who was given a loaf of bread put in a hard-knotted nylon.

He is hungry and already salivating but untangling the nylon will take a bit of time. Won’t he be forced to tear the nylon?

Many are like that. I call them ‘’hurried-lookers’’ who want to achieve whatever they desire hurriedly forgetting that life is one step at a time.

Little steps are at lead to last victory. Success is a process, do not forget. To try to untangle the nylon hurriedly is to make matters worse.

Blindly, we also think we are not making progress. The journey looks slow but we are really moving. Success is not accomplished one day; it is realized through many days of rising and falling.

More importantly, success is the longest journey. A race cannot be won with haste. Just as you have to observe punctuations in your writing, success has its comma, colon, semi-colon, full-stop etc.

Not observing the rules of punctuation in writing is to have an incoherent piece and this as much occurs when you are in haste to be successful.

Dear reader, consider the journey of an infant before it starts walking and talking. Success at anything in life eventuates from several weights and heights. Never expect to get to the top without taking one step at a time.
