Preparation Makes Perfect

A new journey awaits you. Are you prepared for the moment? Your dreams are waiting to unfold. Have you taken action?

“Before the Angel of Success arrives in your life, you should devote yourself to preparing your welcome for her. Polish your craft and strengthen your body to be fit so that you can do your job and enjoy success when it comes. Sharpen your mind and spirit so they are ready to face the challenges that accompany a visitation from the Angel of Success. If you are not ready when the angel knocks, she will flee. And who knows when she will make it back around to your door again?” Chi-Ning Chu

  1. The topic of preparation always reminds me of the idea of sacrifice. A proper sacrifice requires you to give up something now in order to get out more in the future. It’s like an investment for your time, and viewing it that way can help to get over the hump of not being motivated or feeling emotionally “not up to the task” in my experience.

    1. There’s a saying that you cannot gain something from nothing. As you beautifully captured, we must make sacrifices along the way. Our dreams and goals won’t magically manifest without some sort of tradeoff. James Allen posited “There can be no progress, no achievement, without sacrifice, and a man’s worldly success will be in the measure that he sacrifices.” Thank you for sharing.
