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.
If you've not been dreaming/thinking big all these while. You've got to start dreaming/thinking big in order to become big eventually. For, high perception/imagination/anticipation/expectation precedes high success/achievement/attainment. I mean, you can/will achieve whatever you can perceive/imagine/anticipate/expect. Besides that, anybody who longs/aspires to emerge/become a millionaier/billionaier someday must/have to think/speak/act like a millionaier/billionaier.
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.
