S Is For Success

We all dream of becoming successful. That is basically what we live for. We work so hard because we want to be successful in our jobs. We study diligently so we can become successful in the future. We do things the way we do because our goal in life is to become successful. But one thing that many people fail to realize is the fact that success does not happen overnight. It is a combination of patience, hard work, passion and time.

I find it appalling when people expect their success to come so easily. They haven’t proven anything yet and they expect success to be given to them quickly. Lucky you if it did. But for most of us we had to wait. We had to prove our worth. We had to compete; show them what we got before we were able to attain what we have attained. Other people don’t want to work hard. They just leave everything up to luck and act as if success is something that they are entitled to. Success is earned and is not something that is given away easily. And I think the more we work hard for our success the sweeter the end result is. You can then say that you deserve your success.

    Nice Dress ;)


  3. Gorgeous dress and beautiful you my sweetheart.... Kisses, Neha

  4. gorgeous outfit and those sandals have my heart. Love the detailing and the heels are too stunning to carry for a party too.
    Agree with you,but I also feel to those success comes early it could also be a matter of luck. Its all related to our achievements, but yes we have to wait our turn. For me to be successful, I work hard and then pray for everything to fall in place. I think this theory works for most of us beings too . What say ?

  5. Very nice dress,
    i love the details on your heels
    Have a nice weekend

  6. Loved your sandals and your dress, you look so beautiful! I guess that success changes meaning as time goes by. We are told we have to be successful, but that means that we have to earn well and have fame and a good position in our jobs. But success can also mean that we have good characters, we are kind to people and we are content with many other things... anyway, all are forms of success, and whichever people choose, working towards that is a must, things don't come from nothing! You look lovely, very beautiful! Hope you have a very nice weekend!

  7. I totally agree with you. Some people expect that success will be served overnight. It takes hundreds of nights to get there. Nice article, Jenn! :)

    Please check out my latest post, too? I'd love to hear something from you! :)

  8. Oh I needed this reminder today, thank you love! It's can feel so hopeless at times to work towards success as one often feels unworthy, tired and also frustrated. But hey, it's just to keep going! And hey, love your heels babe! Xx

  9. Thanks for the inspiration, it is so true, hard work is the key! LOVE this outfit too!

  18. Although the struggle from hard work is rarely ever enjoyable I know I always enjoy the reward so much more when I know worked hard for it.
    I don't necessarily think people ever make it by chance, we all face some form of challenge at one point or another. Even when it looks like some were lucky, they always end up facing a challenge. I just think it is not suppose to happen the same way for all of us.
    Great thoughts, thank you for sharing.
    btw I really love your shoes, they are so pretty. You look beautiful in this dress. It fits you perfectly.
    Have a wonderful week ahead dear :)

  24. Love your post. One of my favorite author says that it takes 99% hardwork, and 1% determination to succeed. The famous chef, athletes etc didn't get famous because of luck....but because of the work they put in.

  25. You look so lovely and your heels are just gorgeous!

  26. Success does take hard yards and there's a reason for it, it prepares you completely


  27. Loving those embroidered shoes!! Very cute outfit, dear
