It takes hard work

What is your destination?
Work hard to get there.
If tomorrow you see me
At the top of the ladder,
Let that not surprise you;
That is why
I am working hard.
The top of the ladder
Is my destination;
And it takes hard work
To get there;
If I work hard enough,
Do so wisely enough,
And get the support I need,
I’ll get there.
Same goes for you;
If the top of the ladder
Your destination,
Work hard to get there.


Do what is necessary

Do you know what I love most to do now? To get into my bed, cover myself with a blanket, keep warm and do nothing else.

That’s exactly what I’ll not do. It may be the easiest thing to do, but not the right thing to do.

If you want to make it big in this world, do not go for something just because it is easy to do or because it gives you pleasure. Go for the things that are right and necessary even if they are unpleasant or hard to do.

Do not skip something because it is unpleasant to do if it is necessary to do it.
