Can you honestly say you work hard?
Are you grateful for everything, even the bad stuff?
I always remind myself that nothing is going to happen if I do not put the appropriate time and dedication in. It is all up to me how I want things in my life to turn out. If someone or something unexpectedly beautiful happens along the way, I know there is a reason. It does not make me work any less harder but it perpetually continues the joy of being grateful. All of it. The good, the bad and the ugly. Keep putting the work in. Stay true to course. Stay grateful.
