Inspirational Quotes about Life Struggles and Success:
Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable. Every step toward a goal, requires sacrifice, suffering and struggle. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
We all know that there are times when life can be very uplifting, on other days it’s dragging us volumes. In fact, most times, life can be overwhelming for a lot of reasons and sometimes for nothing at all. Is that normal? Of course! After all, according to the great Napoleon Hill:
“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”
Moreover, Frederick Douglass says,
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress“.
So, go on, do your tasks and achieve goals one day at a time!
But, more than anything else, do you know that you have that power within you that needs to awaken and be acknowledged?
Thus, it is my hope that you discover it by sharing with you this excerpt from the book Coffee Break with God:
Og Mandino has written: “Every living soul has different talents, different desires, different faculties. Be yourself. Try to be anything else but your genuine self, even if you deceive the entire world, and you will be ten thousand times worse than nothing…”
Consider the plants and the animals of the field, how they live. Does a cotton plant bear even one apple? Does a pomegranate tree ever produce an orange? Does a lion attempt to fly? Only man of all living things, foolishly strives to be other than what he was intended to be.
You cannot choose your calling. Your calling chooses you. You have been blessed with special skills that are yours alone. Use them, whatever they maybe, and forget about wearing another’s hat. A talented chariot driver can win gold and renown with his skills. Let him pick figs and he would starve.
No one can take your place. Realise this and be yourself. You have no obligation to succeed. You have only the obligation to be true to yourself.
Do the very best that you can, in the things you do best, and you will know, in thy soul, that you are the greatest success in the world.
Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and success will come naturally.
“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4
I wish you lots of inspiration in life and may your life abound with happiness and success!
