Labor for Learning

Posted by Patrice Smith


"... before you grow old, for learning is better than silver and gold. Silver and gold will vanish away, but a good education will never decay." I'm sure we all remember that one.

I can't stress enough the importance of hard work. Working hard overcomes a whole lot of obstacles. You can have unbelievable intelligence, you can have connections, you can have opportunities fall out of the sky. But in the end, hard work is the true, enduring characteristic of successful people and is ultimately the best inspiration.


One of my all time favorite quotes, is:
“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt~

    No substitute at all, sideliners can always speak to which they can observe but the man who played his best and lost knows what it takes and that he gave it his all. Easy come easy go, work hard for something and the appreciation for it and your achievement only provides motivation to persevere to push on for more
