If you have no friends to share or rejoice in your success in life - if you cannot look back to those whom you owe gratitude, or forward to those to whom you ought to afford protection, still it is no less incumbent on you to move steadily in the path of duty; for your active excretions are due not only to society; but in humble gratitude to the Being who made you a member of it, with powers to save yourself and others.
In all things preserve integrity; and the consciousness of thine own uprightness will alleviate the toil of business, soften the hardness of ill-success and disappointments, and give thee an humble confidence before God, when the ingratitude of man, or the iniquity of the times may rob thee of other rewards.
In history as in life it is success that counts. Start a political upheaval and let yourself be caught, and you will hang as a traitor. But place yourself at the head of a rebellion and gain your point, and all future generations will worship you as the Father of their Country.
In order to emerge a success in anything. You must first & foremost believe that you can & then you will succeed. I mean, a strong belief paves way for a possibility/a reality. So, always say & believe that you can. For, you will sooner or later. ~Emeasoba George.
In the stress of modern life, how little room is left for that most comfortable vanity that whispers in our ears that failures are not faults! Now we are taught from infancy that we must rise or fall upon our own merits; that vigilance wins success, and incapacity means ruin.
It is a common saying that punctuality is the soul of business. But besides that, I'm propagating that punctuality is as well an indispensable factor of genuine success. That's because, anyone who dares to take the right step/action towards anything, at the right time and at the right proportion is bound to succeed or emerge a success. ~Emeasoba George.
