Whenever someone is successful, the world downplays him as lucky or god-gifted etc and often downplays the hard work that the person has gone through. Very few realize the discipline, dedication and perseverance over years that has gone into creating that success.
While browsing today I came across this beautiful quote by Messi that highlights above traits.
“I start early, and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.” ~Messi
Someone told me once that anyone can achieve what these superb sportsmen like Messi achieved “provided” they put in a LOT of efforts. Similarly I do hear comments like – Human beings have tremendous reservoir and can achieve extraordinary things if they are determined. Then why do some people thrive and others merely survive? What is stopping you from thriving? What are few things you are determined to do to move from surviving to thriving?
