...Without U, Success would not be complete...
“SUCCESS all depends on the second letter.” This is a cliché that has been present in most of the classrooms. It was first day of the class when I saw this student’s reaction about the logic of this quotation. She was really amazed. As I remembered, she even told her friends about the quote. She remains smiling looking at the pieces of papers cut out into letters and pasted on the wall. The hope and dream is seen on her eyes, thinking of something amazing and beautiful.
It was my tradition putting up quotations inside the classroom of my advisory class. I don’t know but I think through these words cut from a paper or printed they might be motivated and directed towards their dreams. I am also fan of these quotations because they are only words, phrases, or sentences but they mean a lot and they have different meanings depending upon the reader. It’s like life, it might look the same as other’s at first glance but we all have our different stories behind our appearances. We might be living the same kind of life status but we lived each uniquely and different in many ways. And just like quotations that have different interpretations, we also have distinct perspective and outlook in what is happening our lives. We tend to see situations differently. Others can see positive things on negatives, others can turn tragedy to victory, and others can even rewrite the story better than before. It all depends on how we move and place things.
Fate will not stop throwing us tests and struggles. It wants us to learn more each time we face one. Some people tend to pause for a while, it is not bad to do so, but remain motivated and inspired for you not to stop the fire you’ve ignited at first. Remember, it is always your choice if you will stop. It is not the people who stepped on your reputation or the ones who boosted your confidence. It is you! That is what life wants us to realize. That our destiny and fate depends upon us and not anything. Not those lucky charms, not those people, and not those scenarios. It is and always be us, you.
But never forget that there will be no you without having Him first. He created the you that is existing now. Never forget that, yes, you worked for that success, but there is Him who supported and started all of these. God was never been wrong, prove that! You was made for your choice of success.
As Bo Bennett once said, “success is not what you have, but who you are.” You success will be defined by you and it all depends on you. So go out and made out the best on all things because without you and You success would be incomplete!
