5 Life Lessons Worth Your Time
1. Patience and perseverance
Thomas Edison said “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety nine percent perspiration.” This is a truth that I have learned in my life. We often want results to appear overnight and we give up too fast when something does not work out the way we want it to.
When I started this blog I didn’t put much effort into it. I threw something together hoping that miraculously it will find its own readers and it will be a success. Of course that never happened. My first posts were not that great, but I worked my way to better grammar, a better writing style and better advice. Patience and perseverance were my allies in this journey. It took me almost three years to get where I am now but I have enjoyed every step of that journey.
