Life is full of mystery. Full of questions why there are certain great people came from the rugs, from the garbage, and from an ordinary family hold a greater power in the history of mankind.
What are the secrets with this group of individuals? Why they successfully beat the odds in their lives despite of the hardships, calamities, chaos, and storm?
Thats a great mystery that I would like to seek an answer. Because of the curiosity of this tiny computer of mine, I start digging and searching, reading the profiles and writings of the great wise men of the world and finally Praise God! I gradually found an answer in the above queries which I would like to share with you in this article. To encourage you, to motivate you, my dear readers to move forward, to beat the odds, and to conquer your dreams and goals in life!
James Allen, an immortal inspirational author, gave a very good and inspiring answer in all above questions. And here is his answers, here is a youth hard pressed by poverty and labor; confined along hours in unhealthy workshops; unschooled, and lacking all the arts of refinement. But he dreams of better things; he thinks of intelligence, of refinements, of grace and beauty. He conceives of, mentally builds up, an ideal condition of life; the vision of a wider liberty and a larger scope takes possession of him; unrest urges him to action, and he utilizes all his spare time and means, small though they are, to the development of his latent powers and resources. Very soon so altered has his mind become that the workshop can no longer hold him. It has become so out of harmony with his mentality that it falls out of his life as a garment is cast aside, and, with the growth of opportunities which fit the scope of his expanding powers, he passes out of it forever.
James Allen continued, Years later we see this youth as a full-grown man. We find him a master of certain forces of the mind which he wields with world wide influence and almost unequalled power. In his hands he holds the cords of gigantic responsibilities; he speaks, and lo! Lives are changed; men and women hang upon his words and remold their characters, and, sunlike, he becomes the fixed and luminous center around which innumerable destinies resolve. He has realized the Vision of his youth. He has become one with his ideal.
He exclaim that There can be no progress, no achievement without sacrifice, and a mans worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices his confused animal thoughts, and fixes his mind on the development of his plans, and the strengthening of his resolution and self-reliance. And the higher he lifts this thoughts, the more upright and righteous he becomes, the greater will be his success, the more blessed and enduring will be his achievements.
Thats why I would like to remind you, my dear readers, if you really desire to become a better and a successful person, it lies upon in your hands. In life full of challenges, hardships and trials, we need God and hard works enable to become successful person someday.
The great Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul firmly reminded, “Do you not know that in a race all runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training (1 Corinthians 9:24 NKJV).
Remember readers, nothing worthwhile comes easily. Half effort does not produce half results. It produces no results, continuous work, hard work, is the only result that lasts!
Before I conclude my article, I would like you to recall this:
If you have a dreams, hold on to your dreams, if your dreams die, youre like a wounded bird without a wing!
So hold on hold on hold on to your dreams! And always remember that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams!
Wish you many blessings to come and God Bless!
