Just How Hungry Are You?

Successful people are many times just people who were somewhat hungrier and thirstier for success than the next person. What are desired, they pursued. Napoleon was born in what you could call poverty. His schoolmates made fun of him. However, he devoted himself to his books, excelled in his studies, and became the smartest student in class. Before his life was over he conquered much of the world. If you look at a small tree as it fights its way up through rocks to get to sunlight and air,then wrestle with storms and frost to live, you can be sure of one thing: its root system will be strong and its timber resilient. Nature teaches us that it is impossible to succeed without going through adversity. If you are successful and have not experienced hardship, you without a doubt can be sure that someone else will experience success for you. Also if you are experiencing adversity without succeeding, there is a great possibility that someone else will succeed because of the price you paid. Either way, there is no achievement without adversity. The true test of character is determined by what it takes to discourage us and make us quit. How do you choose what is best over what is merely good? Or the long-term perspective over the short-term one? Solomon said: "Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your focus directly before you. Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm. Do not swerve to the right or left" (Proverbs 4:25-27). You say you desire to succeed? The question is-how "hungry" are you?"
