It’s few days away, I am getting a little nervous and I’m anxious as well. It’s my worst nightmare but a stepping stone into the future I have always dreamt of. There’s this saying I have always known since childhood, “observe people who are good at their work; skilled workers are always in demand and admired, they don’t take a backseat to anyone”. This words have always pushed me to do more, know more and be more. Now, I face the test that determines whether I move to the next phase of my life or take a step backward and watch others move ahead.
There are a couple of skilled in-demand personality I have always admired, observing how far they have come in life and asking how I can attain such feat. However, my consolation has always been that phrase, some other people put it this way, “see a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings and not ordinary men”, because of this, I have proposed in my heart to consistently work hard in whichever phase, place or sphere of life I find myself and I am sure that sooner rather than later, I will attain that height.
Who am I? I am you preparing for that exam, that job interview and that career decision you are about making. Never get discouraged, rather remember “the diligent finds freedom in their work; the lazy are oppressed by work”. Also “lazy people finally die of hunger because they won’t get up and go to work”.
CHOOSE WHO YOU BECOME; DILIGENT OR LAZY?
