Success requires payment in advance

By Rusty Potter

The people who are the most successful in life are the ones who create their own opportunities. Not all good opportunities will come your way, some you have to make happen. It’s not about waiting for the opportunity; it’s about creating great opportunities, for yourself. Success may not just come around the corner. You must open your own doors of opportunity. A better tomorrow comes from hard work today.

We are planning our future today. There are no lucky breaks. It’s all about hard work, sweat, and tears. You will need guts, heart, a backbone, the grit, the determination, the persistence, and the boldness to move forward in life. Stop waiting for your big break and start creating your own breaks. You cannot climb the ladder of success with one hand in your pocket. Vince Lombardi said, “The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” Remember, success is a choice that you must make happen. It is not a chance that sits and waits for you and success requires payment in advance.
