Do you know that in your life, success is not compulsory? There is no rule of law that makes lack of success illegal.
Growing up, many times I had pressure from home to succeed in school. Waking up every day, putting on a uniform and then attending a full day of learning. If today I ask you to reflect on all the things that you felt were forced upon you, I am sure you could write a book. However, by now if I ask you, do you regret the pressure that was placed upon you at a young age? You would probably be grateful about it. Many of the skills, virtues, characters and even goals we have today were formed in those sometimes forced and sometimes out of free will moments of pressure but we continue to benefit nonetheless.
Truth is that we continually reap the benefits of “good pressure” that we go through in life. So right now whatever pressure has come upon you, it will only be a matter of time that you look back, laugh and wonder how you managed the situation. For me what matters is the strength it has given you to overcome the next challenge that is coming your way. Be strong!
To your success
