Proverbs 13:11New International Version (NIV)
11 Dishonest money dwindles away,
but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
I often look at YouTube and other social media sites. I also look at a lot of interviews and television shows and see new artists and athletes not to mention actors and such new to the scene.
I often see many of them look like they made it over night. It’s as if they woke up yesterday and said they want to do what they are now doing.
Then I look at me… And I ask myself why can’t that be me? Have I not worked hard? Do I not deserve it? Only to be reminded of a few things…
Many had to struggle to get to where they are. Others already had connections. Others used people to get to the top and some even used shortcuts and did illegal favors.
Then I begin to see again that it matters not how long it takes you to get to the top. It just matters whether you suit or not. Furthermore I’d rather be successful with a clean conscious than having to look over my shoulder.
I charge us all today to simply give yourself a pat on the back for being successful in our own way. We will make it! Just be patient. Be blessed.
