How many times can you afford to fail before you achieve success? This is a question you should ask yourself on a daily basis. Good results come from hard work, poor results come from inferior efforts, and any old results come from relying on the factors that surround you. You can leave success to fate, or you can take control of these factors. Don’t let the situation change you; it is up to you to change the situation to your advantage.
As soon as you cease taking a stand, you abandon all hope. Even if you have to fight a billion people and exhaust yourself to the point of death, there is no other way. If a billion people are fighting for something, it must be awesome right? Never quit. Stop giving people things that they don’t earn, and conversely, stop taking things that you don’t earn for yourself.
