8 Minutes of Motivation

Life is not easy.

Everyone thinks success comes easy.

We only see success when it happens. We never see the hardwork that went in to it.

I will leave you with the wise word of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight,
but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night

Life’s Whispers

“What I’ve found is that diffculties comes when you dont pay attention to life’s whispers, because life always whispers to you first. And if you ignore the whisper, sooner or later you’ll get a scream. Whatever you resist persists. But if you ask the right question – not why is this happening, but what is this here to teach me – it puts you in the place and space to get the lesson you need.”

— Oprah Winfrey, Stanford University, 2008
