There is no top secret or magic formula to getting ahead in life. Each and everyone’s unique beginnings can be a challenge to pursuing our goals because there is no equal playing field to stand on. Some are born with the wealth to catapult them to instant success, while some can only take advantage of very limited resources. Either way, success depends more on work ethic and grit rather than the abundance of your resources. The sky is the limit for successful people because they do what the majority of people are too scared to do.
Upon entering your twenties, you realize there never seems to be enough time to do what you want. Each day passes so quickly, barely enough for you to keep up with big changes happening. Just pondering on how different your life was a decade ago brings tears to your eyes. As you grow older, you can’t shake off the fear that someday time is going to catch up to you, and you’ll be left with failed dreams and regrets.
Aside from the obvious reason why 2020 is arguably the worst year ever in your lifetime, you tend to ask yourself, “Has Christmas lost its value in 2020?”
The answer is: NO. Christmas hasn’t lost its value, its zing, its excitement, its intrinsic brightness; it will never lose all the things that make it beautiful. It’s we, who have lost the appreciation and gratitude to see its value. It’s we who have ironically outgrown the idea of Christmas, thinking it’s celebrated solely for kids (leaving no room for the adults to be happy). It’s we who have made self-centered definitions about Christmas that tainted its meaning through our eyes.
Your life is not your own, and how long it’s going to last is beyond your control. What we can do is to make sure we can delay meeting death as much as we can. Most people take for granted how much a single day can impact the rest of your life, and that’s why they are more inclined to fail and lose their way.
Doing consistent small actions will help you achieve success in the long run, no matter how long it will take. Sometimes we overlook the simplest, littlest things because we’re too focused on doing the gigantic, visible actions to show off to other people. We become so obsessed with polishing our image, forgetting to toughen it up on the inside.
