Success

So many people fall in love with the idea of success. They love the idea of being a great musician, a great writer, a doctor, or ___________ fill in the blank. 
But the idea loses its luster when the same people consider what they will have to give in exchange for being successful.
There's a quote by Thomas Edison that nails this more eloquently than I ever could:
“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”

Today has been a long one, and I'm bone tired so I'm turning in now, and I might sleep in tomorrow (7:00 a.m.)

  1. I feel sorry for you.
    Pleasant dreams.

    You are right. Perfection takes a lot of work.
    This is why when people succeed I applaud them. :)

  2. I wanted to be loved...and Don loved me! I achieved my goal and it was hard work...mentally and physically!

  3. Thank you for visiting my blog.

    The idea in this post is absolutely so true. I guess it's a good thing though because, otherwise, there wouldn't be space enough on Earth to hold all of us celebrities ;-)
